I have no idea. It was just a "box", or tube, I had here at the house. No idea where it came from. Probably something my mother left behind. But, it made a nice protective case for one of the bottles of Virginia wine.

Did you plop the egg and spam in there?

No egg that time. I wanted to try it 'straight up' first.
I will be throwing the egg in next time though. I haven't ever dined on spam before, so that likely won't make it...

Spam, generally speaking is nasty. But in the spicy ramen, it's tasty. The fat of the spam infuses the broth and makes it tastier.

Remember, you're eating instant ramen. It's degenerate food. You can try or make it Uptown by adding stuff like asparagus and crab:


Or, preferably, you can complete the degenerate package with some sliced Spam.

Duly noted.
Yeah, it ain't gourmet. Spam sounds like the ticket. I'll pick some up and slum it.

To go all out degenerate, thinly slice the spam and then fry it until crispy before adding to the ramen.

I found out earlier that menu for dinner would be some NY steak. So i ran to the shop and changed brake pads and rotors, and picked up cabernet sauvignon that came from VA.



Dan, pretty good pick. went real nice. thanks.

Fish soup with bean sprout in spicy sauce.


Peppered beef and plum fruit stuffed with mashed rice with sweet syrup.


Prawns with butter sauce, BBQ fish and beef with greens.


New favorite drink = Kiwi juice

Rob, try a mango lassi at a high quality Indian restaurant and you'll forget the kiwi juice.

That looks delicious.

I had always figured you for an orange chicken and lettuce wrap kind of guy. I'm glad I was wrong.

Instead of a gumi fest, how about a ramen hit the next time we do dinner? That rameniac's top 10 list has three joints less than a mile from the shop.

Number four on homeboy's list is Gardena Ramen, adjacent to a fake Winchell's Donuts on 182nd and Western. It's across the street from Sennari Sushi. I've seen the joint before, but never eaten there. Visible from the outside is the joint's distinctive furniture:




I guess some coffee shop went bust and homeboy bought his furniture on eBay. Apparently, Gardena Ramen serves only Shoyu Ramen and Miso Ramen:




The Shoyumen is looking pretty good:




The place is authentic too:




CASH ONLY. This place is legit.

Asa Ramen ranks as number two on rameniac's list. This one looks pretty good:




This is the first time I've seen the 1000-year-old egg action in a ramen bowl, and it looks interesting to say the least. And I'm digging the sign at the front door:




Topping homeboy's Top 10 is Santouka:




There's a Santouka in the Mitsuwa Marketplace food court just south of the shop. I've seen the place before, but never ate there. The place has the plastic bowls in the front window:




I appreciate that the plastic bowls of fake food are a Japanese restaurant thing, and can be an indicator of the real deal, but such things certainly do not catch my eye. The only saving grace of the front window is the CASH ONLY sign.

Ho and I regularly eat take-out Kiraku Ramen House for lunch, but it's far and we've eaten there enough that it's getting played out. The food there isn't that great either. I might have to try Santouka for take-out. It'll be really convenient too, as I can order the food and hit the Japanese magazine store while the food is cooking.

Seriously, we should hit one of these joints next time instead of Gumi.

(Number five on homeboy's list, Hakata Shin-Sen-Gumi, is also really close to the shop, but we've been there already. I think that place sucks.)
