Glad you enjoyed them Kirk!
As for Sakura I see you had their new shinasoba (shoyu) which I felt the same, is much too bland. The tonkotsu based "Sakuramen" is heartier and better. Thanks again for the Chula Vista tour!!


nice! I found out we have a santouka nearby, Satoshi and I will have to check it out, hopefully soon!


If only I could get the real instant ramen here.


Hi Dennis - Yes, we had a lot of fun with that! Thanks so much!

Hi Kat - Santouka is the Missus's favorite..... it's very rich.

Hi Bill - You can't get real instant ramen there? Geeez


I think you are right about Yakyudori Ramen. I thought it was great the first time we went (Nabe-san was there and took time to talk to us during the rush), but it fell short the second time I went and he wasn't there (the broth was cold!)


wow! ramen really is it's own world, so many types with so many variations on each type. Kind of fun to read about but I'll never be able to keep it all straight =)


I like how the ramen from Japan comes with the packages of side items like the onions and vegetable? in the Sumire


I won't be looking at my Top Ramen quite the same way ever again. What a fabulous gift from Dennis!

I'm not very knowledgeabout about the different types of ramen, but are there similar instant ramen packages at our local Japanese markets?


wow, there's a Ramen Museum? Very cool!!!!! nice gift too!


Hi Jan - After a couple of visits, I started noticing that pattern.

Hi Lynnea - Yes, so much ramen, so little time!

Hi Kirbie - It's menma, bambbo shoots. There are certain brands we get here that have items freeze dried in them as well..... though none are as good as these!

LOL Sandy! On occasion you can get a few of these during Mitsuwa's "fairs", but as a whole, no.

Hi CC - Of course there's a ramen museum..... after all there's a mustard museum, right? ;o) Dennis is so generous.
