I got a surprise call from a Tokyo friend today saying that they were now living in Irvine. And that they were performing tonight at open mic night in Newport Beach. Whaaaat? Okay, but first I need to eat.
Jinya is another new shop that has joined in on the recent ramen invasion of Costa Mesa. With a few branches in socal already, it seems as though they are trying to rule the ramen world. Or not.
This is a good bowl, but it somehow tastes too manufactured. I'm not sure what it is but it's a bit disturbing.
Perhaps these bowls just need a little more stink.
What a surprise!
Great to see you guys! In Irvine of all places!! haha.
