On my adventure radar for quite some time, I finally made it out to Rahmen Yahman. I'll be honest, I was hooked by the name alone.
I was listening to a mashup mix of rapper Mos Def and dub music when I met up with Keizo. No need to provide your own music though, Yahman does the Jamaica thing to 90%. (No jerk chicken on the menu...)
Sometimes, it's all about the little things. Look around for some secret menu items.
Behind menu holders.
On the back of flyers.
And on the walls.
The ramen (rahmen?) is a solid shoyu.
A healthy one at that. This shop appears in one of my books dedicated to ramen that is preservative free. Personally, I haven't had any adverse reactions to MSG in Japan, but if you do, Yahman won't be a problem.
The attention to Jamaica detail is great. Check out the custom bowls.
If I'm out here again, I want to try the junk-style tsukemen.
I asked him if he recommended adding some spice to the soup.
He said it's not a good idea, since the sauce is a bit too much for most. Never backing down from a food challenge, I dove in.
Rahmen = great.
Rahmen with Death Sauce = not so much.
