Miso Izakaya: the ramen is BACK

When we heard that Miso Izakaya was bringing back their ramen earlier this month, there was no hesitation. On November 8th, the first day Chef Guy Wong put it back on the late night menu we were there ready for it. Our previous visits hadn't been disappointments by any means, but missing out on the ramen had left us slightly downhearted. The ramen we had was a redemption. 

We arrived at 9:30pm, ready to order some starters as we waited for ramen. We kept our hunger at bay with the shoyu tomago (soy-marinated soft-boiled egg on grilled rice), a sampling of sushi, and assorted pickles. 5 minutes before 10 we placed our ramen order.

The ramen arrived, steaming, in deep beautiful brimming with flavorful broth, chewy noodles, and topped with fish cake, seaweed, pork belly, and a little bit of corn.

To give you an idea of our experience, I leave you with this clip from the 1985 Japanese classic Tampopo.
