Hide-Chan Ramen

Ramen is one of those perfect we-will-travel-for-lunch meals. Quick to the point of instantaneous and insanely satisfying, a hot piping bowl of ramen brings a contented smile to my face almost every time. After reading Serious Eat's Best Ramen in New York City post, Hide-Chan got stuck in our minds. A subway ride later, we grabbed two counter seats and dug into a some Hakata style ramen. The traditional bowl consists of a heaping mound of scallions, wood ear mushrooms and two adorably soft pieces of fatty pork. I quite loved the thin noodles and lighter flavored broth. M. thought it was good. (translation: better than some others and quite possibly where she would go if she had a craving for ramen but pork flavored broths aren't her all time favorite so maybe she's pre-biased anyway).

Adorably soft?

I don't know what happened! I just started writing and then adorably soft came out. Like squishy, fall apart in your mouth, baby soft.
