Hello & happy Saturday! I tried out some good 'ol ramen last night at Hisago. It's a small restaurant that I wouldn't have otherwise noticed if I didn't do a ramen search on Yelp, lol. It was savory, very filling, and satisfying. Ramen seems so simple. It's just a bowl of noodles, right? But I feel like the chewy texture of the noodles combined with the savory broth is a unique enough combination for me to say when I crave ramen, I am craving that specific type of noodle only.
This particular bowl had a very generous amount of pork. I don't usually see bowls with this many slices anymore, nor this large of a slice. However, I felt that it was just a touch on the dry side. Tim, however, thought it tasted just fine. Odd, because he's usually the more pickier eater between the two of us. The soft-boiled egg was great and still a little gooey in the center. As for the noodles, well...after I was full, I still wanted to keep eating the noodles.
|Maybe it was because I tasted this pork first, but I thought was a lot better than the pork in my bowl of ramen, it was sweeter and had more flavor.|
This tuna poke is sweeter than I expected. Also, I wished there was more tuna. lol
I love tofu. Because of the aerial view, it's hard to see that each piece of tofu was almost the size of my palm.
I just wanted to take a photo of the complimentary vegetables to show the chopstick holder I folded with the paper wrapping that came with the chopsticks, lol.
Took these pictures after we came home. After a long day and long week, please excuse my messy hair and tired expression. I don't know why I can't shake the under-eye bags at all anymore. Aging is inevitable, right?
Oh also, on the weekends, I like to dress very differently from my usual weekly office attire. Ergo, breaking out the faux leather leggings that haven't seen the outside of my closet in a while.

I picked these booties up from eBay a while back. I've seen a lot of lace-up, combat-style boots, but I wanted a pair with a heel. I couldn't find any, so I turned to eBay. I think they might still be available if you search for lace-up ankle boots. I wear them any time I want a little heel height and don't want to sacrifice comfort, which is pretty much what I always want. They're about 3 inches tall with a chunky heel. The flaps around the opening of the boot can be folded upwards, which I do occasionally for extra warmth, not so much for style. Seeing these pictures here makes me that much more aware of my short, stubby legs, lol, oh well.
Have a great day!
