Having ramen is a hit or miss for J and I now. Revisiting is also quite risky because the last time we went back to a ramen shop we liked, it was a huge disappointment. But...thank god Terakawa was still great!
The Terakawa Pork Bun ($6.50) was a new item on the menu, along with half a dozen more that was posted against the wall. I wanted much more but I tried not to be too greedy since we'll be having a bowl of ramen to ourselves.
The bun was different and tasty. Tasted more like a hamburger because of the lettuce, tomato and dressing. I really like how it's not your average pork bun with the sweet sauce and cucumber.
I had the Tan Tan Ramen ($10), I was hoping it would be spicier than it was since the description said it was a spicy miso broth. Even though it wasn't spicy enough, the broth was delicious and the wavy noodles were pretty good also. There was a lot of bean sprouts though. How about a little less bean sprouts and some more meat eh?
J's Miso Ramen ($9) was rich in flavor. Definitely felt like they've been cooking the broth for a while.
Good to know Terakawa is still up to par these days, maybe even slightly better than before. Service is quick and the staff is so enthusiastic to serve, makes you want to come back whenever you're in the mood for ramen.
