Yummy in my tummy! This Japanese place is known for its ramen noodle soup. Shin Sen Gumi has a Japan-style feel when you enter (the restaurant side). One of my friends, who has gone to Japan, said it has the same type of decor and atmosphere. Eating there reminded him of being in Japan. Want to know something funny? They actually have a Shin Sen Gumi restaurant in Tokyo, Japan so that's probably why it can be reminiscent of the country.
From the menu, I order the L-set (salad + fried rice + 1/2 noodle). For those of you who are like me and enjoy variety, this is definitely more bang for your buck. You get to sample three different dishes for $7.50! How awesome is that?
Please note: the extra toppings are additional charge. I tend to get carried away and may order anything in sight. Sometimes my stomach orders for me and how can I can't argue with that?
