Rockmeisha Night 09-18-2008

"That broth was awesome, but I seriously need some water."

Location: 11 Barrow Street
Time: 7pm
People: 11 Ramen and Friends (BLee, CarlA, MGru, PMont, JereM, JNu, JLam from MeSoHungry, RB, MiK, KHash and myself)
Feelings: Rockmeisha is a small authentic Izakaya that provides Kyushu style tapas and, of course, Ramen. Food is fresh, the decor is kitschy, and the service is friendly and laid back-- so laid back to the point that half of our group did not get their water. (After salty food of goodness, they were hurting without their liquid consumption.)
They have one ramen dish: Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen. The broth was so rich yet smooth and gave many layers of flavors as if the broth was the main dish of the evening. Unfortunately, the noodle was slightly overcooked. Since the noodle was thin, we wished it would have a bit more bite. Word of the group -"Ippudo was better, but the broth here was very good."

Other Feelings: If you have a bigger group of more than six people, you need to make a reservation here with your credit card info. But this place would be more perfect for smaller groups considering the size of the place and number of waiters they have.

Post ramen dessert: Return of Batch night! 150B W 10th St
Heavenly! We can't get enough of Batch. All fresh and delicious: Chocolate Green Tea Cupcake with Orange Marmalade filling, Carrot Salted Caramel Cupcake with cream cheese filling and Maldon Sea Salt, Mango Thai Tea Pudding,
