Ramen Kagetora makes its debut appearance at Mitsuwa’s Hokkaido Fair this week with two types of miso ramen. Count me in!
Kagetora’s miso is made with 3 kinds of miso paste, but wanting something stronger-flavored, I opted for the karamiso (spicy miso) ramen.
The mildly spicy soup was tasty. The smooth and mildly sweet miso was creamy and the spiciness added just the right amount of kick.
The noodles were very chewy and starchy…they weren’t very exciting and the denseness was a bit distracting, but they were otherwise decent.
The star of this show was the chashu. The chashu was thinly-sliced, extremely soft, very fatty, and delicious! It was missing something though…what could it be? What could it be…oh, yeah: it was missing a second slice. Really? Only one slice? Sigh. It’s really too bad you only get one slice.
Kagetora is in Costa Mesa for just one more day, but it heads to New Jersey next week. I’ll be looking forward to their return.
Ramen Kagetora’s karamiso ramen gets a respectable 7 out of 10.
