. . . and it was every bit as comforting as the first time around (and especially welcoming given the cold snap we've had recently.)
And at $9, not a bad investment at all. So, in short, a sincere arigatou gozaimashita to the staff for their respite from the season's chilly grasp without the out-the-door waits of the other more popular (but not necessarily tastier) noodle houses.
Can't wait to return in the warmer weather to try their cold noodle specialties too (Hiyashi Chuka!)
