One evening last week I just wasn’t feeling it. I was feeling sickly (that’s been a theme this winter apparently), I was tired, and I just didn’t have it in me to cook dinner. I texted my Mr. Beez, “I want nooooodle soup!” Lucky for us, Ramen Bar recently opened in Squirrel Hill, and we love us some ramen.
The menu is not yet available online, but that was hardly an issue. I told Mr. Beez to just pick up whatever. As long as I got noodle soup, I’d be happy. Mr. Beez, in his usual fashion, spoiled me. He picked up two ramen bowls for me– the pork & garlic bowl and the kimchee bowl.
Ramen Bar is generous with the meat and veggies. In the case of the pork and garlic bowl, there was clove after clove after clove of stinky delicious garlic. Mr. Beez had the Tom Yum soup, he said it was very good, but he was ogling the pork and garlic bowl I had, and wished he’d have ordered the pork and garlic instead. This noodle soup hit the spot. I followed it up by crashing at about 7pm. Soup and sleep are perfect on a sicky day.
I had the kimchee soup for lunch the next day, and it too was awesome. Big chunks of chicken, stinky but not too spicy kimchee, chewy tasty noodles. Ramen bar is going to be in heavy rotation in our takeout selection.
