Cute n casual
Of course, there’s the bread!
But if you go Monday through Saturday night like I did, that’s not what you should order!
Through September 30th, Breadbar continues its “Popchef” Series with consulting Chef Noriyuki Sugie (Ironnori Concepts) and his ramen creations. The menu is beef-based – hence the name Ramen Bull – rather than using the traditional pork.
To start – Crunchy Noodles with salt and vinegar
More fried nibbles – Shishitou Peppers with kombu, soy sauce, and bonito flakes
I only had a couple of each appetizer – there was a lot more food coming!
Kat and I were EACH generously given full orders of both the Vegetarian (off the secret menu) and Ox Tail Ramen
I portioned myself a small bowl of the Veggie version, which had baby spinach and wood-ear mushrooms
Unfortunately for vegans, the noodles have egg in ’em
But you Ovo-Lactos are in luck! That broth – WOW. Talk about flava! Rich, complex, and slightly spicy.
I took the leftovers home for Abe to sample…
…and polished off this entire bowl for myself
Umami Foam-covered Oxtail
Over Soft Boiled Marinated Egg
Though delicious, Kat and I both actually preferred the Vegetarian version! We were impressed that it was just as savory and complex as the beef, with the added bonus of veggies.
For dessert, we asked the waiter to surprise us.
Ta da! Flourless chocolate cake!
There’s no B.S. at Breadbar.
