hide-chan ramen

hit or miss.

my first bowl traditional hakata tonkatsu ramen was delicious: layered but not dominant soup flavors, tender chashu, and just the right amount of shmaltz with firm noodles.

my second bowl of "zen-nose deluxe" ramen-- i could be at fault for ordering such a thing-- arrived lukewarm, with flat soup, covered with a disorganized mound of toppings that included a cold egg and cold chashu.
