“Good broth, skimpy on fixings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2011

I paid $10 for a bowl of Sapporo style miso ramen. The bowl that was served looked nothing like the bowl pictured on the web site. The miso broth was tasty, but the noodles weren't anything spectacular, not much different than you can get at the local oriental supermarket. There were four slices of pork, some bamboo shoots, and bean sprouts. A square of dried seaweed was perched at the edge of the bowl. The only color in the dish was a sprinkle of green onions. Additions like egg, corn, and seaweed like in the picture were extra and could easily drive the price of the bowl up to $15 dollars. Decor is pretty sparse. Service is good. This place needs to improve its food to thrive, maybe add an egg, some brightly colored fishcake, and some corn to the baseline ramen dish to improve the look and value.
