I scanned through the menu, realizing yet again, that before a show we don't have a lot of time to leisurely eat, we must scarf down our food fast and then clear our throats for singing, clear our bladders and get all of the burps out before going on stage. Then all of a sudden my eyes stopped at a dish that brought back memories from home in Hawaii... "Okonomiyaki" (Osaka style Japanese pancake with pork, cabbage, green onions, aioli, tonkatsu sauce, tempura, pickled ginger and jalapenos). I remember having this special Japanese dish at potlucks in Hawaii and once when my sister made it at home for the family after coming back from Japan. I looked at Tyrone after we had ordered our main dishes and asked with puppy eyes, "can we get one more thing I have not had a in a really long time?" and my loving husband said, "Sure honey, whatever you want." ( I LOVE that answer!). And I have to say I am so glad we ordered it! Tyrone took the risk of trying something absolutely foreign to his white boy pallet ( I love it when he does this for his wife who is always wanting to try something new) and he absolutely loved it so much so that he volunteered to eat the very last piece!
For my main course I ordered Shitake Soba noodle soup. I ate the whole thing! (vegetarian option as well)
The hip and modern dining room.
BOOM Noodle gets a thumbs up from me on vibe, food and price!
