J wanted to bring me somewhere new today so I happily followed and after a while, we arrived at a secluded old-fashion Asian house which turned out to be Akasaka, a Korean-Japanese restaurant. I was going to get the best of both worlds in one meal? Sign me up.

I was in the area last week and decided that my ramen addiction needed attending to. Here I am to share with you my thoughts from this visit.Read More
