I miss the Yaohan plaza of the 80's! It's just not the same anymore. I feel sorry for Hanaichimonme, but at least they still serve a pretty decent ramen.
Sagano Set: Hanaichi ramen (shoyu), torimeshi gohan (chicken steamed rice), and gyoza.
Hanaichi ramen: The thin soumen-like noodles have to be the best part of this ramen. The soup was very simple yet satisfying. I was reminded of being at a ramen-ya in Narita airport. The toppings were decent but I'm not complaining.
Torimeshi gohan: I liked it because it was different. You don't normally see torimeshi gohan at a ramen-ya. But personally I would have liked to see some takenoko in there.
Gyoza: Very average. Possibly below. Having the salad dressing touch the gyoza resulted in an eyebrow-crinkling taste and not in a good way.
