『らーめんつけ麺吉田屋』トーレンス店が10月1日ソフトオープンしました。夜は『秦沖縄居酒屋』のままです。今日行ってきました。 (豚骨醤油ラーメン・ご飯お替り自由 / Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen w/Free Rice $8.50) "Ramen Yoshidaya" Torrance pre-opened on Oct. 1, 2012 for lunch. For dinner, they are still operating as "Shin Okinawa Izakaya." I went there today.
ソフトオープンチュのメニューは2種類 / There are two menus during pre-opening. 1、つけ麺 ご飯お替り自由（セルフサービス） ＄8.95 Dip Noodle w/Free Rice (Self Service)
豚骨しょ油ラーメン（冒頭の写真）を食べました。麺は中太麺でもちもち。口の中でとろけるチャーシューとやわらかめのシナチク入り。 I had Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen (The top photo). Noodles are medium thick. BBQ'd Pork is soft and melted in my mouth. The Bamboo Shoots were also soft.
Squeeze the Lime to season the thick Noodle. I borrowed the photo from Hozue, Luke K.'s friend who introduced me to this "Ramen Yoshidaya."
野菜サラダ Green Salad これはまだソフトオープン中は出してないそう。レギュラーオープンしたら、サイドオーダーで＄１で出すそうです。オーナーさんに感想をきかれて、「小さいサラダがサイドで頼めたらもっといいのですが。」と云ったら、サービスで特別に出してくれました。
It's not available during the Pre-opening. After they grand-open, it will be served as a side order dish at $1. The owner asked for my opinion of the ramen, so I said, "It was good Ramen. It's even better if you have a small salad on the side." Then she served this Salad to me on the house.
Ramen battles are getting fierce in a couple of years. Especially in South Bay area where I live, there are more than 20 Ramen shops. Some Sushi, Yakitori, Kushiage restaurants also serve Ramen. There are more than 25 restaurants that serve Ramen Noodle in South Bay area, Los Angeles.
You can read "US Lighthouse" web version, if you click the above link. They are listing 37 Ramen Noodle shops in Greater Los Angeles area. Also they are doing "Ramen Stamp Rally" until Nov. 30, 3012. There are at least 17 Ramen Noodle shops perticipate in this Ramen Stamp Rally.
You can apply with "Ramen Stamp Rally" after getting stamps from more than 20 participating Ramen shops on the application sheet. Then, randomly selected 5 persons will get $50 restaurant gift certificate each. It might be hard to eat Ramen at 20 locations in less than 2 months !?
