Hapa Ramen, Anyone?
Anyone here able to snag a bowl on Saturday at Coffee Bar? We got there what I thought would be early enough, before they opened, but it was sheer chaos. Waited a little bit, but decided to bail and headed elsewhere. Curious what people's thoughts were, if you stuck around!
I did indeed go. Put my name on the list at 5:25, ate at 7:45.
This is high-quality ramen, all organic, all from scratch. Having never tasted a sous vide egg before, I was blown away by that in particular; although every part of it was excellent.
My main complaint was the portion size. It cost $13 for a relatively small bowl, I'd rather pay more for a regular-sized bowl that I can make a meal of.
Makes me wonder if they think they'll have trouble competing against some of the popular non-organic (I think?) joints like Katana-Ya that charge $13 for a huge bowl with everything imaginable in it.
It's also not something I would wait in line for for a very long time.
