Ramen Monday - June 13th

Ramen Monday!

Last week, I was in the South Bay and we had lunch at Ramen Yamadaya (Ramen Monday - June 6th). It was a good place and I'll probably go back there. Ramen Yamadaya's speciality is Tonkotsu based ramen.

Tonkotsu Moyashi Ramen
Pork based broth with Bean Sprouts

Tonkotsu is a rich pork bone broth that has a cloudy white broth. By simmering the pork bones for hours, pulls out flavor and collagen, giving it the rich and creamy look. I probably shouldn't say this, but many restaurants add amounts of cream or butter to enhance the broth.

Have to admit, Ramen Yamadaya has a better Tonkotsu broth than what I had today. As I was passing another ramen place, I thought to give it a shot.

This was disappointing, they didn't cut the chicken correctly
Not even worth mentioning this place

Happy Ramen Monday!
