admittedly, i was one of those to email jonathan gold to tout shinsengumi when he first gushed over daikokuya. now if only he'd mentioned me by name haha. anyhow, glad to see that he finally made it down there, and that he got all the details right and found it worthy enough to write about. especially nice to see kaedama mentioned, as some diners may not be aware of that option. a good day for socal rameniacs for sure =).
