June 2, Thursday – light rain
It’s a quick meet up and dinner with my sister at Menya. This is another place that I regularly visit. It’s very close to the studio where I take my dance lessons. I am usually temped to go for a piping hot ramen when I walk past it, especially in the cold winter time.
Since my sister was there, I finally ordered something other than my regular Nagahama ramen this time. It’s: The Nagahama Ramen Set!!! LOL
The set came with a small seasonal vegetable, spinach that day, with choice of sauce. I picked goma (sesame sauce). Pretty tasty but on the salty side and the portion was decent.
For the grilled item, I choose the grilled salmon. I needed some “pick me up” energy and I think salmon (Omega 3?) is the happy food.
Above was a mis-leading close up shot of the salmon.
It’s actually not small and the salmon was pretty moist and tasty.
Then, it’s my favorite Nagahama Ramen. The set was served with a smaller size noodle than their regular order. But that’s more than enough food for me. The milky pork soup was rich and smooth. It’s salty but not overly so. The ramen was thin and chewy. I really liked the shredded pickled ginger served on top. I didn’t take any picture of the chicken udon that my sister had.
The set was around $14. It’s a bit pricy but I liked the salmon and the side goma. I will stick to my usual ramen which only costs around $7.
I went again on Wednesday and this was my regular Nagahama Ramen.
