Have you ever seen one of these? Yup, it’s a double-yolked hanjuku tamago. They’re not too uncommon, but I always think it’s so cool when I find one. Hmm…could this mean something?
I had an especially good day today. Aside from all the routine work that my days consist of now, I was able to clear my mind and set a few things straight. And adding yuzu pepper to this shoyu ramen didn’t hurt either.
I wanted to go eat ramen at a new place tonight, but when I got home the internet kidnapped me and all I ended up eating was some kyuuri (pickled cucumber).
Don’t worry, tomorrow is my day off so you know I’ll make up for it. By the way, my blog was recently linked in an article from the Huffington Post titled Ramen Is Racist. Good story and engaging title, but we can’t put all the blame on ramen, can we? Anyway, there are plenty of shops still serving bowls of so-called “shinasoba” today. Whether it is still viewed as a slur may be up to you, but nowadays “shinasoba” is known to be its own genre of ramen, a light shoyu topped with Chinese-style barbecued pork and most often containing wontons.
