I finally had a chance to try Umaido this week. It was suggested to me a while back by Jimmy (of Eat It, Atlanta blog fame) when I inquired about local ramen spots on Twitter. I opted for the regular "Pork Based" ramen (they also have Miso & Spicy versions). The ramen does not disappoint: fresh thin noodles and delicious broth topped with green onion, juicy slices of roast pork, bean sprouts, a soft-boiled egg, wood ear mushrooms, seaweed and black sesame oil. You have the option of adding extra noodles or roast pork, but I found my bowl of ramen to be quite substantial and filling as is. After some initial hesitation, I decided to go with the hostess' suggestion of adding fresh garlic to the broth (provided at your table along with a garlic press). I'm so glad that I did because it added just that little extra "oomph"-so delicious!
I wish I could rave about the Yaki Gyoza that I had as a starter. Unfortunately I found them to be a little greasy and quite bland. I will skip the gyoza on a future visit and try the Chasyu (Roast Pork) Rice Bowl instead. I will rave about the service, which was extremely friendly and attentive. Best of all, I left full and satisfied for a little over $13-not bad at all! I'm looking forward to making a return visit to Umaido very soon. Thanks for the suggestion Jimmy!
