Ramen Monday - August 15
It's Ramen Monday!
This was my second visit to Mottainai. This time I ordered the Yokohama Pork Freaker (Mild), the first time I had the Tokyo Sho-yu Props ($6.95) with the White Bomb ($1.50).
Yokohama Pork Freaker (Mild)
Bamboo shoots, green onions, chashu, and nori
Not really a fan, but interesting syrupy broth
Flavor was good, just wasn't a fan of the broth texture.
Gyoza (5 piece)
Forgot to order the White Bomb (garlic flavor extra) for $1.50, they also have a Red Bomb (spicy) too. It adds a bit of garlic flavor or spiciness to the broth.
Overall, the service was really good, gyoza was above average but a bit greasy, noodles cooked well, but should have ordered the Tokyo Sho-yu Props ramen instead. Live and learn...
You can order a larger portion or extra noodle too...
See you next Monday!
