Determined not to lose out this year, I checked the website for their annual lobster ramen.
It's back, in a new format:
"This renewal “ Lobster Broth ” is made using a delicate cooking technique that combines roasted Head & Shell of Lobster, Dungeness crab and Prawn, Sake, Mirin, Yellow Onions, Carrots, Celery, and Tomato Puree. Right before serving we blend our special “Lobster Broth” and rich “ Tonkotsu Broth ” with our original “ Shio Sauce ” and finalize it with a splash of our original “ Sho-yu Sauce ”. This truly exquisite balance of flavors is due to the fine mixture of Japanese and French cooking techniques ! ! !"
*Must* get down there by May 15, $4+ gas be damned (although the English page says available until "Sunday, May 17," May 17 is not a Sunday. The Japanese page says May 15, which is a Sunday. )
Anybody who tries it, please report back.
