Cuisine: “Soupless” Ramen
Mogumogu is a new “soupless” ramen joint near Sawtelle.
It’s located in the space of the former Ramen-ya, just to the west on Olympic.
The interior is… simple.
“Umami” vinegar and sesame seeds.
Shishito. Flash fried Japanese peppers with salt and lemon. I’ve had better shishito — I’ve had worse.
Deluxe mazeman. Sliced pork chashu, spicy minced pork, poached egg, chives, minced garlic, fish powder, seaweed, soft boiled egg, seaweed flakes scallion.
To which I added some wild ear mushroom. The “sauce” is kinda at the bottom.
You mix it up and eat. It was pretty tasty. More like a ramen pasta. Left one feeling the carb coma, but not the epic salt and fat coma of a regular ramen. Kinda enjoyable. I will have to repeat to get a better feel for this new style of ramen. I love that the noodles are thick and al dente.
