So after driving from Costa Mesa all the way up to Glendale to sell my bro’s car, I quietly coaxed my ride home into stopping by the Torrance Mitsuwa for a “scary surprise.” Little did I know that the “scary surprise” was an $18 ramen! $18 good lord that’s a lot of money!! This better be worth it.
Shark’s Fin Ramen: I still can’t believe this ramen cost $18. Can you? I’ll just get straight to it. It was good, but to me not worth the $18. Don’t get me wrong, the soup was delicious, although its とろみ was a little strange and disturbing for ramen. It tasted just like Shark’s Fin soup I’ve had at the local Chinese Restaurant only it had noodles. I’m not sure how authentic it really is, but I felt a bit guilty eating it. The toppings (shark’s fin, bok choy, hints of crab, onions, and probably some other stuff) were fitting for this ramen. For $18 though, it could’ve used a bigger bowl.
