I stumbled upon this restaurant one day after I was out running some errands around lunch time and couldn’t make it back home in a reasonable amount of time to eat my meal prep. I wanted to eat something that wouldn’t be too heavy, would push me towards my goals to eat for gains, and wouldn’t make me feel guilty. Japanese food always feels like a great idea because these dishes are usually pretty well balanced.
I tried my luck and was definitely pleased with what I ordered. I ordered a garden salad (which comes with the delicious, ever-so-coveted ginger sauce) and a chicken ramen in mushroom broth. As I suspected, the experience was great, food was fresh, and most importantly I was left satisfied without feeling weighed down. I believe my entire total came to about $16, which is great for a surprise self date!
As you can see, the portion of ramen was huge! I was able to bring some home and have it for my post workout meal. And you guessed it, it was just as delicious the second time around. I really had to find everything inside of me not to just go curl up and get cozy under the air conditioner after eating!
