A hairstylist from Japan told me about Terakawa Ramen. He said it's just as good as our beloved Ippudo, but minus the two hour wait. Add in the fact that it is only a few blocks away and we knew we had to give it a try. Our reaction was very similar to Menkui-Tei. No doubt that it is authentic and seems to be well liked by their Japanese patrons, but there is just something missing for us. It was a good meal, but we agreed that for our next ramen craving we would rather brave the lines at Momofuku or Ippudo.
