Yushoken Izakaya and Ramen

“Man, it’s really hot.”

“Let’s go get a bowl of boiling hot liquid.”

“OK.”

I resisted the alluring smells of Slapfish as I came of the bridge and pressed on to the far end of UTC to satiate my 3 day craving for Japanese flavors.

Extra points for presentation.

 The murky, oily broth really hit the spot on this extremely typical Socal day, oddly enough. Also, I don’t remember liking bean sprouts as much as I did in this bowl. They just worked so well with the broth, meat, and wheaty ramen.

The “special egg” (that’s what it says on the menu I’m not being cheeky this time) was only just hard boiled. That with a spoonful of broth were perhaps the best bite paired with a pull from the nice mug of Kirin.

Now I really feel ready for the Jodaiko workshop this evening.
