Carb, carb and more carb. That’s what you get when you go to Daikokuya. My son loves the ramen here so naturally whenever he comes with me to Marukai market, he has to have a bowl of it. I noticed that the portion has shrunk since it’s opening but I still like the House Ramen here the best. it’s not as salty or MSG-laden like Santouka. The pork isn’t all fat, but has a good fat to lean meat ratio. The pork also doesn’t have that super porky taste I don’t like. Our favorite thing is to get the minced garlic and put a load of it into the broth! My problem with Daikokuya now is that they’re not serving the ramen in ceramic bowls but rather, plastic, so the broth cools down so quickly it’s annoying. Bring back the ceramic bowls I say!

>Bring back the ceramic – definitely! Still need to go here. Promise I will. 🙂
>I can’t have a lot of carbs and I was so tempted to eat a few more bites of my son’s — ended up eating about 4 bites and some broth. I enjoyed it!
>I miss ramen!
