Ramen with Kuruma-Bu
車麩ラーメン

Ramen time! I like my ramen loaded with lots of veggies. I liked the Kuruma-Bu so much that I decided to fry them to add to my ramen. Got my noodles from a local Asian grocery store. Voila! I-Ta-Da-Ki-Ma-Su! This is what we say when we eat in Japan. We do this so many times, […]
