B.T desparately wanted to prove to me that you can find good Japanese food in the States. He was pleased when I gave Ippudo the double thumbs up after our friends took us there for lunch. The ramen there is so good!
No pictures because those were lost but you can see the mouth-watering pictures on the website itself. The sides were good and the ramen was so good that I actually ordered seconds! At Ippudo, it is similar to traditional ramen places where you leave the soup in the bowl as an indication for noodles top up.
The places is so popular that it is packed all the time. We were lucky to get seats and when we left, there was a long queue that snaked all the way out of the main entrance. I wanted so bad to return back for more ramen but then we got Omakase instead which was fantastic and that will be in another post altogether.
Right now, I am craving for Ippudo ramen..
