Return to Naga Naga

Hey everyone.  Here’s a quick blog about my experience at Naga Naga. I went there by myself last Friday after work to kill time before rehearsal. And I gotta say, it’s not that fun eating ramen by yourself. The restaurant had more customers this time, but it’s probably because it was dinner time on a Friday night, but I can’t say the place was bumpin. I thought about ordering another type of ramen they had on their menu, but decided to go with the same one I ordered before, the naga naga ramen. And I was pretty disappointed. The broth was not that flavorful, and it seemed like half the bowl was full of oil. The noodles were okay, I got the curly ones instead of the straight ones. But it just grossed me out that everytime I pulled out the noodles, they’re covered in grease. The pork slices were mostly fat, but at least the nonfatty parts were very tender. But still, it was mostly fat. I know ramen is not the healthiest thing you can eat, but I could not help myself but be grossed out by how much fat there was. I didn’t finish my ramen.

Hopefully next time will be good. Thanks for reading!

Total Asian Experience!

Hey all! This is Tanya. We took our third ramen run to Rowland Heights. This place is totally surrounded by multi-asian shops, really cute and colorful. The place we ate at was Ajisen. The place was really quaint and modern, the kitchen was open for all to see (really neat!). The choice on the menu had a good variety, the service was decent and quick. The ramen was a bit on the oily and salty side and there was plenty of meat. mmmmm. The noodle had a lot of flavor and texture.
