Curry Ramen!!!???

Curry Ramen...そのとおり、カレーラーメン。
Even for Japanese, it's a unique combination meal.
I love Curry and I love Ramen.
I love noodles (Soba, Udon, Yakisoba, Ramen Somen, Hiyamugi..)
I had Curry Udon before but I've never had Curry Ramen! favorites in one.

The other day, I was browsing web and I found the Curry Ramen Speciality Restaurant in Nagoya City, Japan.
It's called ”Curry Ramen Menya KOKOICHI" (カレーらーめん麺屋ここいち)
All the menu items.....make me want to go there!

People say Curry Ramen was born in 1955.
In 1961 Nisshin Food company introduced "Chicken Ramen plus Curry".
So it's been around for a long time.

I wend to RAMENYA on Pico blvd. (near Sawtelle blvd.)


So I ordered!

It was GOOOOOOOD! Dig it!
You also get Mugicha (Barley iced tea) for free :)

It's a popular place, so you may need to wait if you go there on lunch time hour.

My friend Hiroko's choice!
After we had Thai massage, there was a cute cafe close by.
It's like...Frenchie style??
It took a while to choose what I want.
Here is my choice.

Savory Crape: Dusty's Crape $13
asparagus, ham, Swiss cheese and béchamel sauce

Hiroko's choice: Croque Marcello $15
fig jam, San Daniele prosciutto, gorgonzola, walnuts & Swiss cheese au gratin

My Crape was good. And sweet potato fries was goood. (I requested instead of the regular potato fries.)

My friend and I were expected a different style of croque...
It was just a sandwich.
It was tasty though.

My roommate knows a gooood Mexican restaurant.
The last day of my roommates life, my roommate Heidi, my husband and I went to a Mexican restaurant "Paco's Taco's" for lunch.
My husband and I don't usually eat Mexican food but she recommended and she loves this place.
So here is my order.
Supermex Burriro $10.25
A big burrito filled with beef, avocado, beans & lettuce, topped with special green sauce and melted cheese.

Yes, It's Giant Burrito! I shared with my husband.
The half was enough...since I was eating tortilla chips lots before.
