Beef Ramen at Tampopo
Tampopo is running some kind of a gyu ramen special this month. The thought of a beef stock-based ramen was a bit strange, but it turned out to be a lot better than I thought it would be. Rather than a heavy beefy flavor, the broth was kinda rich and creamy...almost tonkotsu-like.
The only weird thing was the two slices of konnyaku that they topped it with, as they had some kind of a yakiniku flavor infused into them. Actually, I guess I kinda liked the taste of grilled meat, but it's just the wiggly texture of konnyaku that is disturbing.
