i love ramen. a lot. and ippudo is worth writing home about. the lunch set is pretty epic; a side salad, your choice of rice bowl (in my case fried chicken), ramen (my choice: the akamaru modern with housemate noodles, umami miso paste, pork, cabbage, mushroom, scallion, plus a seasoned soft boiled egg!) i wanted to eat here again as soon as we left and am sad they don’t have a san francisco location.
