This was a tiny ramen shop with 4 parking spots right in front of it. It seemed to have pretty high ratings on Tripadvisor (4.5), Yelp (4), and Google (4.5).
The interior decor reminded me of a Chinese restaurants?. Wonder if the ramen will be authentic?
To me, it just didn’t look that legit with the baby bok choy?♀️. Regardless, B enjoyed his miso charsiu ramen.
Tender beef slices on top of firm noodles in a thick soup base. You can taste the shallot and garlic in its aroma.
For me, this wasn’t an authentic Japanese ramen place, more like a Chinese fusion ramen. It did not impress me. I mean the ramen didn’t taste bad, just mediocrely tasty, not worth the high ratings that I have seen.
