It's been a while since my last post. Partly because I've been busy getting ready for this trip and and work has been relentless, but also because I scratched my cornea last week and I've been allowing it to heal (thanks Dr. Murakami!). So here I am, fully healed, and ready to embark on a two-week slurpcation. See you in Japan!

So I reluctantly chose to try the ramen at Hamada, being fully aware that it would be a disappointment...or would it?

Ramen DLX (Shoyu): If you're at LAX waiting for your flight to take off and craving a bowl of noodles, do yourself a favor and save your 10 bucks, unless you are absolutely desperate or traveling to a ramen-deprived country-you'll thank me later. The soup was on the saltier side with pepper being the main ingredient. I couldn't taste much else. The toppings (chashu, egg, menma, kamaboko, moyashi, and negi) didn't taste much better. The noodles were also a mess. Undercooked and lacking any flavor, I couldn't be more ready for Japan. I wouldn't call this a disappointment since I wasn't really expecting much in the first place and although it's not the worst I've had, it does rank down there with them.
