Kobe Sushi Y Ramen

0 Comments

Lovers of food have plenty to be thankful for living in Torrevieja. This multi-cultural town has food from around the world. One thing we have been missing, until recently, is a nice big warm bowl of ramen. (I’m still waiting for Pho to show up, but I am patient.)

So when some friends told me there was a ramen restaurant opening on Calle Ramon Gallud I was very excited. We made plans to go there just shortly after they opened and I know we will be back. The interior is quite cozy and well decorated. There is no outside seating, a rarity here in Torrevieja, but on this hot summer day it was nice to escape the heat and dine indoors.

A cozy atmosphere

We wanted to try both the sushi and the ramen to get a good first impression of the restaurant. I may be wrong but so far at the other sushi places in town I have not seen Unagi (fresh water eel) so we set our sites there. We ordered a nigiri portion ($3.95) and that small bite was gone almost the moment it hit the table.

Since I make my own sushi at home we really did not feel the need to have the sake (salmon) or the maguro (tuna) or the ebi (shrimp) and so we stayed with the unagi for our roll. The Unagi roll ($10.95) has tempura shrimp inside as well as salmon and mango. It was delicious and filling. The roll (8 pieces) is small in diameter which we liked. Sometimes sushi rolls can be so large that you are unable to get the full bite in your mouth, therefore not getting all the flavors at once. These were the perfect bite size pieces so we were able to experience exactly what the sushi chef had in mind.

Now it was on to why we came, the ramen. Ramen much like Pho is all about the broth. A good broth can easily be simmered for days starting with roasting the bones and simmering all the herbs and spices for days, weeks or months. There is a restaurant in Bagkok Thailand (Wattana Panich) that has a base stock for their beef noodle soup that has been simmering for 45 years! Now, we are certainly not on that level here but the stock was quite tasting. The noodles were perfectly done and we ordered the ‘Costilla Ramen’ ($11.95) that came with 2 ribs, the usual hard egg, bamboo, seaweed and corn. I should also mention a person I took to possibly be the chef / owner came out twice to ask us what we thought. He was very nice and when he saw we were sharing brought over an extra bowl and spoon for our ramen.

These three dishes were just the right amount of food to feed two people. Of course, I have been known to eat upwards of 20+ nigiri dishes in the past on my own but that can get quite expensive. If one person were to order just a bowl of ramen I am certain they would be more than satisfied with a good hearty meal. I look forward to going back.
