For those who have been craving good ramen like I have, Matuba (Japanese restaurant in Bethesda that has been around for years), is finally serving pretty authentic ramen. It is only available on Sunday afternoons, for the time being, as apparently it takes the chef 6 hours to make the broth. Their char shu was pretty decent, too.
I used to go up to NY to get a good bowl, but this is pretty close to the real thing.I also like Daruma's ramen; they also put in more toppings, but now we have a choice!!!!
