Asari Ramen – Marina Clams & Egg
In San Diego for another wedding. It was getting late and we had not had dinner yet and ended up at Tajima restaurant. There were 2 menus….actually make that 3…1) the dinner menu, 2) izakaya menu and 3) the specials menu. We mainly ordered from the izakaya menu…I love tapas style dining because you can taste a little of everything. They had some interesting things on the menu like raw octopus, gizzards, beef tongue, etc. We actually ordered a lot of dishes but they were all not worth mentioning. There were a few ramen flavors but the Asari ramen caught my eye because it was different. The soup tasted like Asari broth which I’ve had before…I was hoping the soup would have more depth but there was nothing special. The noodles were okay…nothing to write about. sad face. Tajima ended up being another “new and trendy” izakaya restaurant that left my taste buds unsatisfied and my tummy feeling icky.
