Afuri's specialty is yuzu ramen - they have all sorts, but I chose the Yuzu Tsukemen ($15.90++), the dipping ramen, which a friend had highly raved about earlier. Obviously, because this is dipping ramen, don't expect it to be piping hot like a soupy ramen is. Please hor.

Pick up some noodles with your chopsticks, dunk it in the sauce, & slurp. As I slurped on my noodles, I felt pleased with my good judgement. The citrus flavour from the yuzu adds a refreshing twist to the savoury sauce.

It doesn't look like it in this photo, but the dipping sauce is plentiful. You won't run out, nor will you want to finish it all because this isn't a soup & it is too salty on its own to drink. Being a non-fan of Japan (haven't been there in >15 years), I can't say for sure how authentic this is. But I can tell you I definitely enjoyed it.

The pork chunks had little layers of fat on it, but I still felt the meat was a bit too dry for my liking. Thankfully, it wasn't overly tough to chew, so I finished it all. The other ingredients - half a boiled egg (with a nicely runny yolk in the middle!) & bamboo shoots, were in good proportion with respect to the ramen noodles.
