“Ramen is a Japanese dish that consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat or fish-based broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork, dried seaweed, menma, and green onions.” If you have never had authentic ramen, it is a soothing comfort food that hits you on cold, rainy or gloomy days like a bright ray of sunshine. With its silky-rich broth and chewy noodles, you can’t help but fall in love. But it doesn’t have to be a cold and dreary day for me to crave it. One of the best places to eat ramen in the City is Goro Ramen + Izakaya located in the very popular Plaza District. It has become a favorite weekly lunch date for me and my son.
We start out with the Tofu Nikuman – a house-made steamed bun with fried tofu, pickled cucumbers, mushroom sauce, fried shallot, and negi [green onions]. These are a great little appetizer before the main event.
The ramen. My favorite is the Yasai – vegan broth, tofu, roasted tomato, mushrooms, fried shallots, and negi. This big bowl of delicious goodness is enough to fill me up and then some.
Today is one of those dreary rainy days that a big bowl of delicious ramen is perfect for…lunch anyone?
