Food Find: Terakawa Ramen

With the cool weather here to stay, a bowl of steaming hot ramen can be the perfect meal. All of Terakawa’s broths are pork based except for one with soy milk (pictured). It had depth of flavor, perfectly cooked noodles and an adequate amount of veggies. The sesame seeds, dried garlic and hot sauce add-ins on the table made it hard not to finish every last bite. This restaurant is good for a quick meal at the counter by yourself or at at table with friends, and the perfect match for the cold months ahead.
