This place came highly recommended by my brother and my youngest kid. Their description, with words like "authentic", "better than Ajisen", "so good, just like you're in Japan" got me interested, but they also said "they have weird hours", "they don't do to go", "the place is small", which made me not rush to try it.
Today, I went with the youngest and.... PARTY IN MY MOUTH. I ordered the tonkatsu ramen (and added soft-boiled egg) with a side of gyo don and I think a smile was plastered on my face the whole entire time.
Downside? I tend to be a slow eater and felt pressured to eat fast since there weren't many tables and there were several folks waiting.... it worked out okay... the feeling came and went quickly and I enjoyed every last slurp.
Four stars.... minus one point for not offering to-go service.... in this day and age, it's about choices and convenience.
Food and service-- thumbs up!
Food was ok..service was so-so..ambience made up for it...
