For some of us, the word ramen conjures up memories of undergrad, when all you had was a couple of bucks and needed a late night snack. Off to the neighborhood Safeway you went, and when you realized a few dollars could score you an entire case of fried noodle blocks with those mysterious foil packets of salty broth-like substance, you rejoiced. If you are still an undergrad, or Top Ramen consumption is still a regular part of your diet, my apologies. That stuff is not the ramen of which I speak. Tuesday nights, Sinners & Saints gathers at Lounjin for casual conversation and a chance to get to know each other better. We share about life, maybe a few topics specifically, and eat bowls of delightful curry, miso, or soy based ramen broth. And the ramen?
As you can see from the pictures, it’s a far cry from those prepackaged blocks you just dump into boiling water. Real ramen is made with fresh noodles, homemade broth of your choosing, and topped with meat, tofu, and veggies. Totally customizable, it’s a great deal and perfect on a cold day. And if ramen still just isn’t your thing? You should try the nachos. They’ll blow your mind. See you next Tuesday!
