It is 10:30am and the staff is just setting up

On the other side of the street hungry customers wait

They give you the menu. You choose from 4 kinds of ramen.
Tonkotsu King, Black King, Red King, and Green King

You can order "Additional Topics" for your ramen.
Their specials "Smile" and "Japanese Class" are free of charge. :)

Ordering is easy. Everyone gets a form and you tick what you want.
I love that you can customize your bowl down to the garlic content and firmness/softness of noodles.

(We change Black King to Green King at the very last minute)

The Butao King arrives in his Porsche.

At 11:39 we finally get seated.
On the table are chili and kimchi bean sprouts to spice up your ramen

豚王 Tonkotsu King - porky, milky, creamy, yummy

翠王 Green King - infused with fresh basil, olive oil, and parmesan cheese! I enjoy this extremely.
