Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen @ Obu Ramen House!!!

$12.95 + 1.00 spicy chili paste
(other food, and tax/tip not included)

Tucked away in a strip mall plaza, you wouldn't think anything special about this Ramen house from the outside, especially when its sitting right next to a New Tun Kee Noodle house, but this ramen noodle house is a hidden gem in San Jose.

We went there around 1:30pm, well past the lunch rush, however the place was still a bit busy.  We were seated quickly and had ordered in a matter of minutes.  We each got the Spicy Tonkotsu Ramen with thick noodle, and when I asked how spicy the dish was he replied "very mild" and then suggested the chili paste when I indicated I like it very spicy.

Once the bowls arrived I tasted the broth, it was the porky creamy goodness that I expect in a good ramen bowl, and despite being labeled as spicy, it was not, and so I added the 1/2 the chili paste which brought the spicy level to a very good level of kick.

The noodles were thick and chewy, just like I like them, and all of the added toppings were cooked to perfection.  It wasn't long before we both had devoured the bowls in front of us and we were both extolling the virtues of the dish we had ordered.

I'll certainly be back for some more ramen at this location!

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
