Ramen as it should be

Today my friend and I visited Misoya, an amazing, caring local spot. The stairs are cracked and broken on the way in, and the sign still said “Fermé”. But I’m glad we persisted. This is the best ramen I’ve had to date. Some people called it a “chain,” but it’s really just a lil’ NYC sensation that took off and opened up in Tokyo and SF as well. Happy they chose Quartier Concordia to open up – as I’ll be going often. Care and attention to every detail. Broth was lovely – salty in an intense, deep, miso way…as it should be. Pork was tender and felt like I was uncoiling the neck meat of a turkey–yet tasted way better. Noodles were just dense and eggy enough without being an over-burden to the stomach. Generous, melty scallions. And extra spice if one so desired. By the way, the daikon salad starter (included in the 9,95 $ lunch special) was also something I’d make in a dream: simple flakes of the crisp white radish, doused with just-enough sesame miso purée. Lovely. Dainty and fulfilling all at once. Here’s my photo:
