My Wednesday post about my life in Japan.

The Special House Ramen...

dried seaweed... nori
green onions...negi
roasted pork... chaashuu
noodles... men
house made pickled cabbage... kimchee
in a miso soup... suupu

The day was hot, too hot for me but this ramen was a super quick
wonderful lunch.
Plus what can I say lunch with my wonderful daughter-in-law and
darling granddaughter is always perfect.

Now if I can only come up with a better word than daughter-in law. Yes
she is married to my son, but she is more, she is family and how nice
that I am now part of her family !

Be sure to check out photo of the restaurant on post #2

  1. Oh dear that doesn't look too appealing to me. I'd need those eggs cooked a little more and would not touch the seaweed or meat but the noodles look great. About your other post, do you still make pottery? I have always wanted to learn.

  2. It must be lovely to go over there to see them.

  3. I've been told to cut down on salt. Maybe that dish will do the trick.

  4. jeanette....
    I e-mailed you with the info....

    I love visiting. I have lots of family and friend that are so much fun to be around.

    Well, I am not so sure about how much salt is in this dish but I know they don't add any. Miso is fermented and soy sauce is naturally salty. That sad I dream of this ramen.

  5. Yuko really liked this post!

    I think I'm the only person who doesn't really care for Ramen Taro. My favorite ramen is quite a bit different and all the way on the far side of Kobe

    @kirk I doubt that ramen is good for any diet

  6. What a fascinating change from what we eat around here!
    I would love to visit Jaan one day.
    What a fascinating history.

  7. David....
    I know the ramen your talking about.... but since you have only flaunted those wonderful photo taunting me even, with pictures of ramen goodness.
    If I could eat there it would be my favorite too !

    As David said I am not sure how good ramen is for ones diet but I like eating it several time when I get over to see family.
    I make what I think is a pretty good substitute that tides me over.

  8. Too mundane for you but my DIL is DIL- in print that is.
    I do love seaweed like that. Super meal all together.

  9. japan? I have a friend in Japan - Liz, she married a chappie there.
