My friend Jae was walking around my neighborhood today and noticed a new restaurant close to my home.  He suggested we try it tonight.  It’s housed in a cool-looking stand-alone building in the parking lot of a strip mall — the interior is small, warm and inviting, with subdued lighting, a bar and a big communal table in the center surrounded by booths.

When we showed up around 7pm there was already a crowd waiting for tables, which seemed like a good sign.  It was.  The place has Sapporo on draft and the food is exceptional, easily the best ramen I’ve ever tasted, and reasonably priced, too.  It’s open seven days a week until 3am.

What a find.
