I had an itch for ramen today, as is known to happen once in a while. Didn't want pho, I wanted ramen. Dragged myself over to Nom Nom Ramen, new to the Rittenhouse area on 18th Street, just south of Market. It was worth the trip. I ordered the Karai, or spicy ramen. Broth was solid, noodles delicious and still had a tiny bit of toothsomeness to them (what's Japanese for al dente?) and there were sufficient bits of pork and veggies to keep me happy. I added a poached egg, which was a bit closer to medium boiled than a runny poached egg, but still added a little something to the soup. Regular sized bowl, addition of the egg and a can of Diet Coke set me back around $12. Definitely an excellent addition to the scene here. Service was pleasant and efficient. Lots of Asian students and young professionals in the place, many of wom I overheard saying they'd just heard about it and rushed over to check it out.

Sounds like I need to rewatch Tampopo and give it a try.

We went to Nom Nom with friends last Saturday night, it was great! Also had the spicy ramen. Their spider crab in a bun was excellent too...

One of favorite places in Philly. When we go to an open practice at the Philadelphia Orchestra, we walk there for lunch. The food is a far cry from those packaged noodle cups. Spider crab is great.
