Terakawa Ramen, Philadelphia, PA

Overview
It's been a while since my last post, so let's go with my favorite ramen place in Philadelphia, PA. Located at 9th and Race St, it is at the outskirt of China Town. It is a small place with a limited number of seats. I didn't take any picture of the outside and inside of the restaurant but they are easy to find.

Food
Going there by myself, I can only eat so much. So I ordered a bowl of Miso Ramen and Charshu Onigiri. The miso ramen has a miso soup base, with toppings like charshu, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, half-boiled egg, and kikurage mushroom. If that wasn't enough, you can buy extra toppings and noodle separately for cheap.

The charshu onigiri is a seasoned rice ball with charshu bits in it, covered with seaweed. They also give you a spicy mayo dipping sauce. It is something that I get every time I go to Terakawa.

Other things I had tried from previous trips include takoyaki, curry udon, karaage chicken, and so forth. They were all very good and well worth the price.

Final Thoughts
I've been to this place so many time that I can say so much more about it, but I will stick with only what I ate on this trip. For only $9 before tax and tip, it is fairly cheap, and the taste is great compared to a few other places I've tried in the city. If you are ever in Philadelphia China Town and can't decide on what to eat, Terakawa Ramen is a great option to have.
