This place hasn't been open for long, and I can't help feeling they're riding the crest of a crashing wave - surely brick-heavy, artery-clogging ramen can't have long to run as the leading genre? Well, while it's here it's good.
Incidentally, howzabout those sprouts? How did the manly men who love Jiro ramen decide that a big pile of boiled bean sprouts was the perfect way to add height and volume? It's a mystery.
The soup is quite good, the noodles are quite good...the pork deserves special mention. In a genre where everyone is trying to look for an edge to make their product more intense, this pork has a black exterior from being...soaked in soy sauce. It's a little much.
They get some good height here. Quality. Respect.
