Chashu Ramen special at Ramen California

The are featuring some new special ramen dishes at Ramen California in Torrance.

One was a new broth that was 1/2 chicken and 1/2 fish broth. We didn't try but I will need to go back.

The other specials were I believe called "Banmen" which we were told was a different style dish. It came with Chashu pork or Chicken. They also had homemade hard boiled eggs you could add to dishes.

We ordered the Chashu with egg. We watched the chef pull out a nice big piece of pork and pull out his special knives and slice the pork very thin.

The dish soon came out and indeed the pork was much more thin than usually had with Ramen. The dish had a really nice smoky smell that seemed to be from the pork and was infused in the noodles. The sauce was very light and sort of just dressed on the noodles rather than a soup. The eggs were really nice. Much better than the normal boiled egg. The yolk still was custardy and mixed in with the noodles and broth.

Really liked the dish. Need to go back and try the chicken and other new stuff.

They have also now added Japanese Asahi and Kirin beer. We were told before that the owner only wanted American beer so just had Miller and other stuff we don't like. So we were really happy.
