Excellent Ramen-- But Rushed-- With Inconsistent Service 7/10/2008

I had heard on the grapevine that the Ramen noodle soups here were excellent, so I decided to try them. There was a small wait on a Saturday morning, but nothing terrible. My companion and I were soon seated and served our drinks. Other than hot green tea, drinks are not refilled.\r \r My companion and I ordered several dishes which we wanted to divide and sample. The staff seemed to wonder why we needed and extra bowl instead of just providing one.\r \r The Hakata Ramen we ordered is a pork soup base accompanied by ginger, bean sprouts, seaweed, green onions, sesame seeds and bamboo, with a meager slice of pork. The soup base and the noddles were very good. \r \r We also ordered Gomoku Ramen. This dish is soy sauced based, and a bit more elaborate than the Hakata Ramen. It has all of what the other did, but with the added bonus of fishcake, imitation crab, and boiled egg. It was an excellent tasting dish, very satisfying.\r \r We ordered green tea ice cream and Cream Mitsuame for desert. Both were excellent and fresh.\r \r The only real downside to the restaurant was that although the initial service was prompt, it was somewhat inconsistent, leaving my glass of water low, and not asking if I or my companion would like another Ice Tea or Coke. And the worst part was that, we felt rushed and hurried by the staff to finish our meal and move on down the line, not a good mix with a bowl of wonderful Ramen. I?d go back when the urge for Ramen hits, but I would not make it a priority in a place like Little Tokyo where good food abounds.\r more
