Q,
I did end up eating it first. I thought it was good, just a bit of a shock since I was expecting a cherry tomato.

Haha! Yeah that red thing is an ume (pickle plum). You're supposed to eat it first to cleanse your palate I believe... Shoulda gave it a squeeze like I did to establish if it was indeed a tomato =P

I like Daikokuya better because of the pure unalterated pork flavor of kotteri style and that best pork ever of course! But I have to say that Santouka's broth is a lot more complex and

Polar,
You've got me craving Santouka's ramen again with your description! I think that small bowl is a brilliant marketing ploy. Keeps you craving more. If they had a bigger bowl, we might get our fill of it more.

Tigerfish,
I'm always amazed how those plastic foods look so real!

Elmo,

I tried my friend's spicy miso ramen, and it's awesome...maybe even better than the shio. I still have to get my butt to Daikokuya though.

I like shio ramen too and have been hunting around for a good bowl of ramen too :)

Of course, the real thing is much better than the plastic but they do look similar.



Kelly,It's a colorful bowl, isn't it?
