Backdraft

Hey friends, Joan here.

Remember that movie, Backdraft? With Kurt Russell, William Baldwin and Robert de Niro? Well, I never saw it. But I remember that one part of the tram ride at Universal Studios, where you’re in a roaring warehouse inferno. Anyway, that’s besides the point.

I recently went back to Ikemen Dip Ramen in Little Tokyo with a friend. When we arrived, the restaurant was pretty empty. The same server I had last time was working that night, and there was a ginger fellow cooking behind the bar. They both wore cool hats, by the way. We both ordered the Backdraft Dip Ramen. (See, I had a point! Sorta…)

Ramen Converts

Hey friends, Joan here.

I have acquired new converts to join my ramen cult. Muahaha!

After a Matthew Jude Band gig at the Joint in LA, I thought I’d take some friends on a late night ramen run at Tatsu. Half of them have never had ramen before so I was pretty excited to be part of their first ramen run!

There was actually a large group of us there, but I didn’t take any photos of myself, Matthew Jude, and Angie. You’ve seen enough of our faces anyway.
