A wonderful evening out with my partner concluded with our plans to go out to Sansotei Ramen for dinner – this was the first time we had eaten at the restaurant instead of having their take-out. For what it’s worth their take-out is phenomenal, it travels well, stays hot, and is just as good.
Once being seated in their modern Japanese-inspired ramen house. I noticed hanging from the ceiling of the cozy and beautiful room was this very wonderful woven decoration and behind the front desk was a gorgeous wooden light backdrop that made it feel all the more unique. Looking at the menu filled with a host of possibilities I went for shoyu ramen and braised pork with my choice of thick noodles – I find that the thin noodles are closer to instant ramen versus thicker noodles for more hearty ramen. My partner went with the umami-packed tonkotsu black ramen.
The two types of ramen shown above are what my partner and I ordered. For her Tonkotsu Black – a black garlic oil ramen including braised pork garnished with black fungus (a delicious edible mushroom), a creamy rich broth, and thin noodles($16.75). I picked the Shoyu – a light Japanese soy sauce-based ramen, also with braised pork, perfectly cooked egg cut in half, topped with green onions, bamboo shoots, and light but hearty broth with thick noodles (16$). Perfect at the end of a cold November night.
