Ramen: Mei Kui Tei (Tuesday, May 4, 2010)

I went out to dinner with Yumi before going to a performance at Carnegie Hall (Orpheus and Ryu Goto) Tuesday night.  We didn't have a specific place in mind for dinner, but found a Japanese ramen restaurant close enough to Carnegie Hall.  The ramen was good, but nothing great.  I wouldn't go out of my way to come here again, but it was pretty good especially if you're looking for convenience before a show.  It's also near Joe's Shanghai.

Shoyu Ramen (soy sauce flavored noodle soup - 2 pieces roast pork, bean sprout, bamboo shoot, and scallion)

Tonkutsu Ramen (rich pork bone broth noodle soup - 2 pieces of roast pork, bean sprout bamboo shoot, and scallion)


By the way, the performance that night was amazing!  The music by Ryu Goto was beautiful and it might have been the first time music brought me to tears.  It was amazing to find out that Ryu is a college student at Harvard studying quantum physics.  What a memorable evening.
