Last night I tried out Daikaya's Ramen bar. It was magnificent. The choices of stock all looked paralyzingly good, but I finally went with the dark Shoyu Ramen. It was like drinking gravy made of umami. I want a gallon milk container of the stuff so I can pour it over all of my meals. The marinated, soft-boiled eggs will also murder you with tasty.
And now I find they do rice bowls for lunch? I have to go back at least once to try the Izakaya, but now I also think I have to find a way to hit it for lunch and try this concept out. If DC's not careful it might just blunder its way into a downtown that's actually worthwhile during non business hours.
