Santouka Ramen

In search of the perfect Ramen, I went to (Little) Osaka via the Catmobile Express... This is a popular Japanese chain in SoCal, Santouka, or Fire Head Mountain (see the three Chinese characters on the banner?). Hm, we Chinese should charge the Japanese for intellectual property infringement! In the form of free ramen for life :-)

I had been craving the Shoi or Salt ramen ever since having a perfect bowl at its Torrance branch. But alas, this one was somewhat disappointing -- the broth was thick and yummy, but what is this layer of grease doing floating on top? Huh? Totally ruined the ramen.

Diners chowing down the ramen -- slurp slurp slurp.

One eee, two eeee, three eee. I should be working on stomach crunches not slurps. :-)

i had this too, at the same place (torrance) it was really good & had no oily stuff floating on mine =]

but come to think of it, it might have been the grease from the pork or something

Have you been to Daikokuya in Little Tokyo yet? Still my fave.

Nope, never been to Daikokuya. Need to go :-)
