A friend and i were reminiscing about our experiences in our younger days eating at various Japanese noodle houses in SoCal - inexpensive, filling, tasty and decent quality bowls of noodles.
I know most Japanese restaurants have a couple such dishes, but i long for a strictly noodle house. I haven't noticed any here (basically Oakland-Berkeley-El Cerrito), but maybe i've missed them.
In this chilly weather winter weather and his current impecunious state, a restaurant with a selection of nice hot cheap noodle bowls sounds appealing. Are he and i just out of luck here in the "central east bay"?
Thanks for any suggestions.
