Cafe Kubo's

One of the perks of being a member of Ramen in Common is that whenever there's anything new in Houston's Ramen world, you can be sure to know about it first.
With founder, Carl Rosa's connections from the Sushi world, as members, we get the benefit whenever they needed guinea pigs to try out their new menu items.  Sign me up!
There are fried shrimp, oyster mushrooms, stuffed pepper, fried pork.  All in Osaka Style, which means batter is made with four, grated yam, water and eggs.  It makes it light and fluff and doesn't block out the flavors of the food themselves. 
This is the Chicken Ramen.  It is a very good comfort food, and it'll be perfect when the weather gets cooler.  I would say the soup base was a little lighter than I'd like in a ramen.  But the noodle is perfectly balance with elastic and taste.  The chicken, and this is a consensus, where the dark meat is much more flavorful than the light meat.  The egg of course is perfect.  When you slurp up the soup, make sure you get some scallion, because it draws out the flavor of the soup.  So don't be a fool and discard them!
