Erin and I were supposed to go to a young professionals event after work at Karbach Brewery and I was supes excited since I’ve never been before but we both ended up stuck at work and by the time we left, it was too late.
We ended up chilling at her place talking about all the different things in life and work, bonding and getting to know each other more. We were both super tired but we trudged on with great conversation. It was great just talking and hanging out with her outside of work.
We started getting hungry and ended up at:
1801 Durham Drive
Houston, Texas 77007
Geso [crunchy, flakey, and chewy Tempura fried squid legs] | $5.25
We both found this delicious and I want to go back for it. It’s nothing fancy but the tempura was great compared to other places. I thought it’d only be the legs but they had the body attached too.
Tonkotsu Ramen [Tonkotsu served with kikurage (wood ear mushrooms)] | $8.95
I went with the pork broth. The “thicker” broth. I never knew they had different ramen noodles for different broth. Learn something new every day. I do want to try the chicken broth ramen next time. Erin let me try the chicken broth and it was very refreshing.
Samurai Armor (Combo Topping) [3 slices of pork belly or shoulder, green onions, black mushrooms, marinated bamboo, a whole soft-boiled egg and roasted seaweed] | $5.50
I got this on the side just to see how it was and it didn’t disappoint. I would say next time, I’d probably just get an extra piece of pork belly, soft boiled egg, and seaweed. That was enough to make me happy.
I’m was never a big fan of ramen. But this might have changed my mind. It blew my mind. Or maybe I was just very hungry from all the conversations. If you couldn’t tell, I was definitely getting my foodie on since my wisdom teeth are to come out Thursday morning. Great meal. Gahhh I want to go back right now!
