Oh how I’ve missed really good ramen, which is not easy to find unless you’re closer to Seattle. I’ve been on the hunt if there is one hiding up in our neck of the woods then someone needs to share this information! 🙂
A family member told me about this place and I just had to check it out. Similar to Ajisen Ramen in Guam where I had it many times whenever I had a major craving…sigh. My absolute favorite was the Paiku Ramen (Ajisen both topped with slowly braised succulent pork ribs, crisp kikurage wood ear mushrooms, soy egg and lightly garnished with scallions) I believe they can also be found in Japan and some places in California.
If you’ve never had Japanese Ramen then this is a must! First thing you need to know is that it’s so very different from Vietnamese Pho or Chinese Wonton Soups. So if there is one in your area check them out.
