One could live in a city like DC for years and barely make a dent in its eating scene. Although, every time we visit I get another chance to try! Toki Undergound anyone?
Good timing and patience is a must at this tiny, no reservation gem in the H Street Corridor. Fortunately for us, we arrived at quarter to 5pm and were second in line!
Quirky decor, loud music….let the games begin!
Grab a stool, get a beer or cocktail and decide what type of wonderful house made noodles you would like. But first…. try an appetizer or two…
We sampled the pickles and a seasonal special, sautéed ramps
Of the ramen selections our party chose the Kimchi bowl, redolent with pulled pork, greens, kimchi and a soft, soft boiled egg. The other ramen choice was Taipei Curry Chicken with fried chicken, curry, greens and again a very softly boiled egg to stir in.
As for me, I’ll take the Abura Tsukemen. Pork fat noodles, pulled pork, scallions and other aromatics. Served with a side dish of a wonderful dipping sauce which only enhances the experience.
For added flavor, try some fried shrimp heads or some chicken butts on top of any of the noodle dishes!
