AGU Ramen

Earlier this year me and my mom went to AGU Ramen for the first time. We loved it.  You can check out my post here

Leslie made me all ono for some Hakata-style noodles so a couple of weekends ago I asked Wendell if he wanted to go there.  He had never been there before.

We got there at around 11:30 am and they were already packed.  Our gyoza came pretty quickly.  No, I'm not left-handed, but I wanted to get an "action" hashi shot.


Wendell ordered the Shio Tonkotsu Ramen ($10.75).  

I decided on the Shoyu Jidori Ramen ($11.75) which comes with an assari (lightly flavored) broth.  It was a bit too assari for me so when Wendell was done with his ramen, I put whatever was left of my noodles into his bowl and finished eating it with his broth. It was way yummier that way.

We went yesterday, Len had "The Works" he loved the rich broth with the cheese. I had the shoyu tonkotsu, really good! Now that I see your shoyu jidoori...I would prefer the tonkotsu too. It doesn't look tasty enough!

Les said...

I think I'm only ordering tonkotsu ramen from now on!! Well, unless I'm at Gomatei then I'll get the tantan...but tonkotsu ramen rocks!!

J: gorgeous food pixs. Looking at your pixs and your comments realizing it takes some skill (and time) to make 'em so good.

How are the portions there? I don't eat at ramen-yas cuz I have a big appetite so I still hungry when pau. Same w/ Japanese restaurants, never enough for me. -N

I wondered about that cheese one, Mich Sounded so strange to me. Good to know that Len loved it!

I agree, Les!

N, the portions are average size. Not really huge. But the thicker broth ones are very filling.

Wow! Wow! Lau Lau!

And to think I used to get excited when my Dad would buy me the $0.99 cent won ton mein at the Chun Hoon window after church on Sunday nights on Nuuanu, back in the 1960's!

What was I thinking?

This has really come a long way!
