Ramen Monday - March 5

Gyoza Ramen

March is National Noodle Month!

Today is Ramen Monday and I'm in a Hurry! So, I'm having my gyoza in the soup. I don't have time to wait for my order to be served in two parts.

The thing I don't get is why Japanese open ramen restaurants in the U.S.? In Japan, they have ramen shops where you'd sit at the counter and service is fast. When ramen shops open here, they slow down the process and takes 15-20 minutes to serve ramen? It should take no more than 5 minutes to serve ramen, the noodles take 3-4 minutes to cook. If you've had Vietnamese pho, you know what I mean...

I don't know, maybe I'm asking too much... What do you think?

Just a Noodle Rant...

Happy National Noodle Month!

Ha! I never thought of that, but then I've never been to a ramen shop in Japan. I guess in the US, longer wait times imply fancier food - and higher prices follow suit.
