Noodles at Nine 05
I went with the tonkotsu ramen. When I reviewed Nine 05, this was the dish that got me a little riled up. How were they to know I have a fetish for this stuff? This time around, the soup had improved a bit -- the noodles were cooked right, the broth had more depth, and the temperature was appropriately piping. It still wasn't close to the authentic Japanese dish (even just from appearances, the broth should be pale and opaque), but what the hell -- I like pork belly. Put an oozy egg on top of it, and I like it even more. I'm just going to pretend this dish is called something else.
