Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen

If you’ve been reading my blog at all (or have an ounce of intelligence), you know I love me some Ramen.

So much so, I’m capitalizing the word.

Througout the entire post. Feel free to comment if I miss one.

And if a Ramen house has the phrase “Your choice of hot, spicy or DEMONIC” on the menu, I will kiss the salty restaurant floor the chef walks on.

Before I moved to a city with more than one Japanese restaurant, I always equated Ramen with the delicious, sodium-rich lunch we’d enjoy once a week at school. A Cup ‘O Salt Lick, if you will.

The styrofoam container boasts more nutrients that it’s contents do. They should serve Ramen halfway through a marathon to avoid hyponatremia!

So, it seemed odd to enjoy this $.69 cent meal at a restaurant. The markup alone is just too outrageous.

Ramen Jinya, sister restaurant of Robata Jinya, is one of five locations. Clyde and I ventured to the tiny spot located on Wilshire.

Truth be told, I didn’t even eat much of the meat that came with my ultry spicy order. I just bathed in that amazing, rich broth. Until I was drenched in sweat…

Clyde, I apologize for what I must of looked like. Napkin stuck to forehead. Futile attempts at fanning myself. Grotesque slurping.

Cheers to you for maintaining your appetite.
