It’s another dinner before dropping Ben off at the airport for his monthly business trip. Ben decided to go to Union Square for dinner.
Apparently, there is not many restaurants in Union Square which the boys like. We finally settled with Yah-Yah-Ya Ramen. Customers register themselves on a registration sheet at the entrance like most Japanese restaurants practice. It was full house when we were there, so we waited like 15 minutes for a table.
Ben ordered the large Spicy Miso Ramen to share with me. The serving was really big and quite spicy too. We opted regular for the ramen hardness, broth strength and oiliness.
I ordered the Chashu Set to go with Ben’s order. The chashu was very soft and the mayonnaise adds sweetness to it.
Arkensen ordered the Shoyu Ramen. I asked him to get the large bowl too so that I can tax some of his bowl. His ramen has a strong alkaline taste to it. Arkensen opted his ramen to be hard as he likes his noodle al dente.
Nanzaro ordered the Abura Soba which comes in one size only. It’s a dry style noodle.
The server brought the above seasonings for him to add extra flavour to it. They include vinegar, soy sauce, hot oil and toasted sesame seeds. Nanzaro only added the sesame seeds and some Japanese seven flavoured pepper to his noodle.
There is a station in the centre aisle of the restaurant where you can help yourself with the condiments.
Yah-Yah-Ya Ramen only accepts cash and debit card.
