I'm a big fan of Jinya Ramen's regular menu items, but I also really enjoy that they have special menu items available throughout the year to switch it up a bit!
The current Chef's special is available until May 31st, and is a spicy "Kara-men": clear chicken broth, ground pork, bean sprouts, green onion, onion, cilantro, chili paste, onsen tamago, and sesame seed. I did switch the thin noodles for their thick noodles because I like them better, but otherwise kept everything as listed. This was a great bowl with a lot of flavor! I'm not even a big cilantro fan but it was fine in this dish, plus it added a nice pop of color to the rest of the bowl, haha. It was not really as spicy as I thought it would be, but it was still very delicious and I'd definitely get it again!
