i have a friend coming into town who really wants to eat here.
the problem is, i really haven't had anything i liked there. ive had the shoyu and the miso and disliked both. the shoyu was too salty and the miso was ehhh, boring and one-note. the noodles seemed overcooked both times. i had the summer noodle dish once, it was ok - but surprisingly, i liked the cold summer version at chabuya across the street a little more (and that place's ramen is overall a little worse than this place). if i want ramen on the westside, i invariably end up at santouka.
is there something im missing? what should i order, curry rice? i feel bad not really wanting to go there... but the wait is so long, and i cant figure out why.
