I've been craving a really good bowl of nabeyaki udon, or a wonderfully porky bowl of ramen like you can get at places like Sapporo in Manhattan. Anyone know of somewhere in NoVA where you can get a good authentic bowl of noodles? The best I've found so far has been the nabeyaki at Akasaka (which isn't as good a bowl as it one was) and the ramen at Maneki Neko, but neither is as good as I've had in NY.
