I have a friend named jackson and he works at a restrant called Samurai Noodle. they used to have a daily special ramen that jackson used to make it for me, whenever I come, even if it’s not the special that day. Now, that special ramen is on the everyday menu, so I can have it anytime that i go there.
Ramen is the technical term for a japanese noodle dish. ramen was originally chinese, but everyone thinks that it is japanese. But instant ramen was invented in Japan by a man named Momofuku. My mom read a book about him and told me. so that is why you want to read this blog, so that you can learn a lot of stuff.
when we go to samurai noodle, we usually order an appetizer called gyoza. gyoza is a dumpling. i like them because i like ground meat and vegetables in the gyoza. the gyoza at samurai noodle are my favorite because the flavor is tasty.
i always order the spicy miso ramen*. it always tastes better when jackson is there and he makes it. but i still eat it when he’s not there. the spicy miso has a pork broth that gives the ramen a delicious flavor. the soup has a spicy taste that takes awhile for you to feel it. i call this a ‘slow burn’. this is one of my favorite restrants and i recommend that you try it for yourself…NOW!!! This very second. if you’re still reading, you’re not doing it this very SECOND!!! if you see jackson, tell him p-man sent you (^-^)
