AGU Ramen

Based on the recommendations of several people, me and my mom went to AGU today to check out their ramen.


My iPhone normally takes pretty good pictures to me, but in this small-kine darkened room, it was lacking.  We got there a little after they opened so we were one of the first ones to be seated. A half hour later, the place was full.

Myko recommended the Kotteri Tonkotsu so that's what me and my mom ordered.  While I was taking pictures, my mom tasted hers first.  She kept saying, "OMG, sooooo goood.  Better than the other place (Hokkaido Ramen Santouka)." "Wow, so good.  Better than the other place." 


The Hakata-style noodles threw me aback a bit.  It honestly didn't look good to me.  But one bite removed my doubts.  It was al dente just how I like it.

The egg was perfect . . . not like the other place.

And so was the gyoza. Plus, my mom noted, this place gave us six pieces ($5.25). The other place only had five ($5.50).

Gochisou sama!

That looks like some rich, tasty broth!

jalna said...

Susan, I thought the broth was very tasty yet not too salty . . . maybe from the garlic flavoring.
