Mottainai Ramen

December 23, 2010 Gourmet, Japan No Comments

Looking through pics in my digital camera, I noticed that there are quite a few things I forgot to post about. One of which is this ramen joint inside Marukai Pacific Square. It’s a relatively new place that serves some pretty good ramen. I recall that everytime I would talk about ramen around my kickboxer friend, he would ask me if I ever got the chance to try Mottainai. Apparently, he really likes this place. Anyways, the other day, we went.

I ordered the miso and added all sorts of toppings, like an egg and wonton. I also tried a bit of their spicy paste, as well. The noodles were different (not in a bad way) from what I’m used to. Nevertheless, I thought everything was pretty tasty.

I’ll be back.

EM visiting from France. we went to Umami – Los Feliz branch.

I read all of the mixed reviews of the place, with most complaints being about the size of the burger and the price point. And after experiencing the place myself, I fall into the cheer camp. Yay.
