Momokawa Restaurant Review

: This little sukiyaki and ramen shop with a branch in Tokyo is dedicated to the art of Japanese hotpot and soup noodles. House-made broths and quality ingredients make it worth a visit, especially for those with a yen to visit Japan. Chicken, pork, shrimp or vegetable ramen noodles and beef, Berkshire pork, chicken or vegetable sukiyaki combinations are warm and satisfying. Slurping is customary as is drinking out of the soup bowl, so enjoy both noodles and broth in traditional Japanese fashion. A simple interior marked by a sushi bar of light natural wood and a few closely spaced tables and chairs provides the setting for a menu of fare that also includes a grilled Boston mackerel or fried chicken served with rice. Wash it all down with a glass of saké or a Japanese beer.
