A steaming bowl of ramen, gyoza, and an ice cold local craft brew...Mondays just can't get any better than that.
And at Yumi, you can enjoy a double take of ramen every Monday, with Yumi's Ramen Mondays...now how cool is that?
Miso, Shoyu, Shio or Tantanmen, whatever you choose, you get two bowls for the price of one every Monday at Yumi. Mondays definitely got better at Yumi...
Yumi's Tantanmen Ramen (P 340), with creamy tonkotsu and torigara broth topped with tender chashu pork belly, ground pork, peanut cream, onion leeks, quail eggs, enoki and shitake mushrooms. A Japanese version of the fiery Sichuan dan dan noodles, the reddish mildly spicy chili and sesame broth is enriched with even more flavor from the ground pork. You have the option to have the broth served on the side, and poured on your ramen bowl when you want it. The thick and nutty broth is topped with soft yet firm Japanese noodles and fresh vegetables to complete the flavors. A sip of the broth, some noodles, a piece of chashu pork and some vegetables, leeks, mushrooms, and a quail egg, and Mondays are starting to look so much better.
And there's nothing like an ice-cold local craft brew to complete your ramen feast at Yumi, like the smooth and refreshing Joe's Brew's Fish Rider Pale Ale. With its light, pale golden hue, Joe's Brew has a sharp, clean and flowery finish that lingers long after the first sip, pairing well with the bold flavors of the ramen.
But there's more. Order a side of Gyoza (P 165) to pair with your ramen...
...or the Skewered Pork Belly (P 115), tender pork seasoned with salt and perfectly grilled topped with onion leeks and served with a side of crisp potato "hay" and shredded cabbage. Each slab of grilled pork lined with a thin layer of flavorful fat releases delicate flavors punctuated by the salt seasoning. And don't forget to grab some of the crisp potato "hay" for that crunchy finish.
Brighten up your Mondays with Yumi's Ramen Mondays for a pair of comforting ramen bowls. Feeling the Monday Blues? Head on over to Yumi for a solid ramen fix...
