Hide-Chan Ramen

Hide-Chan Ramen
Its my second time visit at ”Hide-Chan Ramen”

Hakata Kuro Ramen ♥♥♥1/2

Many peoples say that Hide-Chan Ramen is too salty……… 😦 My first visit to Hide-Chan I thought the same thing too! But my both Kuro Ramen and Spicy Ramen were perfect when I came here for the second time. I would like to go back again for third time sometime soon to give you my final thought about their Ramen. Stay tuned ~ XO

My favorite Ramen is The Hakata Kuro Rame.

Momokawa

Japanese Lunch at ”Momokawa”

Momokawa is located on 28 Street ( between Lexington Ave & 3 Ave ) in Kips Bay/Flatiron area. Restaurant is known for their beef and pork Shabu-Shabu. I sometime come here for lunch with my coworkers but I’ve never came to here for dinner. Recently food blogger friend Kenta a.k.a LORD OF THE FORKS told me that he was just here for dinner and had amazing Yellow Tail Shabu-Shabu (for two persons $72). I will report you back if I try Yellow-Shabu sometime soon. Stay tuned for dinner report ~

All my photos are from lunch menu. My favorite lunch set is a Kara-age / Japanese fried chicken lunch set. Gyudon and Saba Teishoku were yummy too.
