Today I’m feeling like being bad, food wise and I’m taking it out on the latest ramen/yakitori place in Koreatown. This spot is almost identical the one on Baldwin street, except the kitchen has added a chicken broth option when building your soup.
Simple yet refreshing, “Samurai rock” sake and lime cordial. Next, I build my soup. The chicken broth has ground little pieces of chicken in it so it’s a must, shio style seasoning (sea salt, white onions, nori , scallions, egg) fresh “thick” handmade noodles fresh and pork belly finishing it off with an extra egg and butter of course. This is the hug I needed, perfect for a cold day.
Kimchi isn’t overly spicy or flavourful, maybe a few more days of fermentation would help. Tako wasabi always clears the sinuses – ask for soy sauce on the side to dip with the nori adds the perfect touch. Spicy fried chicken hot karaage not extremely excited about this one, however a nice balance between garlic and heat.
