Throwback to this crazy ramen from @noodleinhaystack in their home kitchen. Triple soup with clam, chicken, dashi. Abundance of toppings. Corn, chicken chashu, pork shoulder chashu, white onion, chive, kombu butter, nori, steeped egg, two types of clam. Sofrito tare for the base. Garlic spiked chicken fat and saffron salt round it out.
Lots going on here, very provocative. Definitely a lot of thought and care went into this bowl, giving the dish a ton of complexity. Personally I could see them removing a few of the toppings to streamline the experience (I'm all about the golden rule of 5 when it comes to toppings). But the broth, god that thing with the clams and butter, absolutely incredible. Tremendous umami.
Without question, no one is doing ramen like this in the US, it's very forward thinking while still paying massive attention to technique. Very impressive stuff. Worth checking out if you're in the Bay Area.
Smaller portions than I'm used to, but I'll take this ramen 2 blocks from my place over no decent ramen. Tsukemen noodles had such a delightful thickness and chewy bite to them. Takoyaki were 👌. Also can't complain about the iza ramen broth special combo mix of tonkotsu, vegetarian, bonito, chicken broth #ramen#sframen#sanfranciscofood#sffoodie#sfeats
#ToppingTuesday : Tare (垂れ) is a term in Japanese cooking for the seasoning sauce used in a bowl of ramen. Though it can also be the sauce used in grilling, sushi, and other dishes as well. In ramen, common tares are shio, shoyu, and miso.
Tsukemen at Tomita（とみ田), in Chiba. One of the most famous ramen shops in Japan. Tsukemen is its signature dish. Super thick, fishy and porky broth. ⠀

Calling all commitment-phobes! Our original Chicken Paitan recipe is now available in orders of two servings per box! Now there's no excuse not to try Ramen Hero... unless you live outside of California. In which case, thanks for your patience as we continue to grow. Stay tuned!
Trying out this new Hakata ramen spot for our latest ramen adventures! Wait wasn't bad on Sunday afternoon. Love the thin noodles. Note that they're closed Mondays. #sframen#sfeats#sffoodie#japantownsf
