I’ve been to Niwatei twice, including today. And the restaurant moved to a ‘new’ location. It’s a nice near by ramen restaurant, saves the travel time if you’re craving ramen but don’t want to travel all the way downtown for lunch.
Things have definietly changed since my last visit. They have more items on the menu and a bigger seating area.
I can’t read Japanese, but I think it’s a St.Patrick’s Day dessert special. Thankfully, we had 5 people for lunch and all 5 of us ordered different mains.
Mom and A ordered this as their side: Japanese curry.
Miso Ramen. It’s a light salty ramen, for days when you don’t feel like going all out with your taste buds.
Tonkotsu Ramen: this is the soup base that every ramen place is known for. It’s milky soup base contains hours of pork bone stock being simmered.
Shio Ramen: fish stock with noodles.
Chashu Ramen: it’s a bit different from the tonkotsu ramen..the meat here is barbequed pork.
Mom’s and A’s dessert, green tea with mochi.
D’s dessert: mitsumame.
Everything here can be found on Niwatei’s website (under products). They have expanded their menu as they now serve deluxe and have combos. If you’re not in the mood for ramen, they also serve udon. And it’s definitely reasonable pricing for a combo (main, side and dessert) or if you decide to order the deluxe.
