A taste of Hokkaido- Tampopo

Treated myself to a tasty rich bowl of seafood base ramen at Tampopo last week. They were having the Hokkaido ramen specials ( ended 22 Nov. )

Noodles were served separately from the soup. Just add the amount you like into the soup. I had some difficulties with the noodles as they were kinda 'dry' and was a chore trying to get an appropriate amount into the soup.

There were dried shrimps, bamboo shoots
and seaweed. Soup is a tad 'salty'

something's missing

can u figure out what food item is missing?

How can they forget the egg?
so it is :P
( so cheapo.. one egg cost like 10-20cents..
this place only serves 1/2 an egg! )

good read

"As a young girl, Ginko Ogino seems set for a conventional life, cushioned by the male-dominated society of nineteenth-century Japan. But when she contracts gonorrhoea from her husband - an illness then thought to be incurable - she is divorced and disowned by her own family. Unable to bear the humiliation of being treated by a male doctor, she resolves to become a doctor herself. As more and more obstacles are placed before her, will she give in to social pressure or continue to fight against her world and her times?A huge bestseller in Japan, where it sold over three million copies, "Beyond the Blossoming Fields" is the real-life story of Japan's first female physician and a timeless parable on the power of love and idealism."
