Kome Miso Cha-Shu Ramen @ Misoya Ramen

$22.00 (tax+tip+egg+spicy+soda)

This ramen joint, like most is tucked away in a little block of buildings that have seen better days and are conglomeration of various services and businesses.  While the outside is rather bland, the interior is quite nicely decorated, while there is ample seating, at noon the place is packed (not sure about dinner), so plan accordingly.

The ramen itself one of the better ramen I've had in the bay area, and while not as "spicy" as my favorite place in San Jose's Japan Town, Kumako Ramen , their mix of flavors all meld well and add to the overall flavor profile.  Its really hard to say if this is better, as it seems while similar they are quite different.  There are a few things that make this ramen better in my opinion.

The ramen I ordered was the Kome Miso Cha-Shu ramen which then I added a Miso Egg (+1.50), and Spicy Paste (+1.00) the red dollop in the middle of the pics, along with two potato wedges (aka thick cut french fries).  The Cha-Shu pork are the sliced medallions which you get three.  They are tender with a nice crisp outer crust and are delicious!  The last thing are the noodles, they're spiral but are thicker than typical ramen joints and are one of the things I liked about this dish.

Most of the ramen is around 10.00, my order was 12.50 + the addons, which you can really go to town with as they have a wide selection of addons which start at least 1.00 ea.  Price is the only detractor to this place.  Where other ramen joints typically give you some of the addons already included in the meal, e.g., the egg, spicy flavoring, etc.

When all is said and done, I highly recommend this place if you enjoy ramen, just make sure you get there early and bring enough cash/credit!

2am Chili - How To Make Chili "Like A Boss"

Over on the reddit  user tylercap  posted his recipe for Chili, "Like A Boss" that he likes to make at 2am between sessions of Black Ops.  However unlike the traditional listing of ingredients in a 3x5 index card format or video of the process tylercap decided to post pics along with some stick figures showing the process.  Also if you're unfamiliar with the meme "Like a Boss" check out the bottom of the post for the youtube clip from Andy Samberg of SNL and thelonlyisland . nsfw language and imagery for both chili and "like a boss" video after the jump.

POPUP SHOP - Modo Mochi Donut @ Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose

$20 for a dozen!!! (other food, and tax/tip not included) People have lost their damn minds once again in the "craze" of these Hawaiian Mochi Donuts!  We arrived after lunch at the Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose off Saratoga Ave.  The line was out the door! My friends got in line, I went in to scope out how long it would be.   I passed the automatic doors and saw the line twisted to and fro, back and forth, amongst various food stands and displays.  I inquired the length of time people were waiting, 2-3 hrs was the wait time.   OMG! No frick'n way!!!   No pastry was worth that wait!Luckily, my friend came in to see the line size and saw their sister in law and was able to snag a few to share with us! Thanks CHAN!  The max you could get for one person was a dozen for $20.    Now don't get me wrong, the donuts were very tasty and had that slight chewiness of fresh pastries combined with mochi, but they weren't mind blowing crazy go
