roma tomato, chicken broth, petite basil, crimini mushroom, italian sausage, romano/parmigiano reggiano cheese, durum semolina ramen noodle.

this was my 2nd least fave one. it didnt taste bad at all but it tasted like spaghettis and meatballs, im here for some nice asian ramen, not some ramen version of spaghettis and meatballs.

  1. Wow that looks like a busy event with lots of delicious food!! I bet it smelled awesome. Food is amazing to me, people can use the same ingredients and end up with something totally different in taste and texture. Fun!

  2. In the words of Liz Lemon, “I want to go to there.” That looks amazing! I’m dying to try real Ramen. I’m still hoping to make a visit to yume wo katare. Which was better: Yume Wo Katare or Dark Men?

  3. OMGosh! That all looked incredible! My mouth is watering… I so wish I was there… I love noodles.. your photos are killing me! LOL I guess I am now gonna live vicariously through you and your photographs!!!
