Unlike the one you had for your asshole spouse. 2010, I wasn't a foodie and ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ramen because of the atrocity of Ajisen; Bari Uma was one of my first favourite "real" restaurants. The last day of 2019, I am still madly in love with this bowl of ๐—ก๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ถ ๐—ง๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฎ ๐—จ๐—บ๐—ฎ ($16.90).

The almost bisque-like broth carries a sensual viscosity and creaminess, and explodes in your mouth with an intense umami. The combination of texture and flavour creates an immense comfort, but the broth never gets overwhelming โ€” I practically ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ every drop of it.

The viscosity of the broth also allows it to cling beautifully onto the noodles, which are always delivered with the perfect bite. Not to mention the perfect ratio of lean meat and melt-in-mouth fat found in their chashu. Maybe these are rose-tinted glasses, but this sentimental romantic remains charmed โ€” and perhaps that's a testament to their consistency.
