Ramen Festival Yokocho 2014 - iPhone Photo Diary

8:00 AM thecomelycloset 0 Comments

Good morning! I'm in a pretty good mood at the moment, and hopefully this carries on throughout the week! This past Saturday, I attended the Ramen Festival Yokocho. I first learned the existence of the Ramen Festival last year through my brother. If you know me, you know that I love my ramen! I've had a love affair with ramen for about a year now, although I am glad to say it is slowing down. I would consistently eat ramen 1-3 times a week, and other soup based noodles as well. It was a bit excessive if you asked me, but the tummy gets what the tummy wants :P 

I was extremely excited when I heard they were holding this year's Ramen Festival at the Santa Anita Park, which is a 15 minute drive from my home. I got there a bit after the doors opened because I heard about the horrid lines last year. It was a great idea if you asked me. I was able to try 5 different ramens, with our divide and conquer tactics. Also, I guess it was Japanese Family Day, so there were lots of other activities and booths, including a mini flea market. I scored big at the flea market, and ended up spending all my cash, including all my friend's cash as well.. :) Post coming soon with my goodies!

Below are a few pictures I took with my iPhone, so I could share a bit of it with you. Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of all the ramen, nor do I completely know the names of the places I tried, which is a total fail. BUT, I still hope you enjoy the random images! Have a happy week lovelies! <3

First ramen of the day, Menoh! Tried the soy sauce based ramen, and it wasn't so bad.

Stood in the longest line ever under the beating sun, so snacking on this Dipping Dots was a life saver.

They finished up in their lines, and came to join me for the longest line of them all.

Niece went to explore and came back with some Takoyaki! NOMS!

Exhaustion hit.

Finally reached the point where we could see Tastunoya (the most anticipated ramen from Japan).

Although efforts were made, we were still sunburned. :(

Almost there and delusional selfie!

Waited 2.5 hours for this bowl of Tastunoya Ramen! Pretty good, but I personally enjoy cream based ramen more, hence the not "amazing" rating.
