"Cure for the Average Brunch" Our Ladies suited up in their Sunday finest and headed out to Bucktown to sample the Noodle Lunch at Takashi.
Tastefully decorated in modern greys and pops of orange, Takashi is a very welcoming space with a lovely small patio out front and a cozy upstairs dining room. Reservations were encouraged, but from what Bunny and Brandy observed (they were there at the first ring of the lunch bell at 11:30) it took just under an hour before the restaurant was filled with buzzing patrons.
Next came the noodle bowls. Bunny ordered the Miso Ramen, which came with assorted veggies and braised pork. She seemed to think the broth was a bit salty, which Brandy scoffed at. "Dear, it's miso, it's supposed to be salty," Brandy scolded her. Bunny wrinkled her nose and rolled her eyes. Bunny reported the noodles were lovely, the broth very flavorful, and the pork very tender, though maybe a little on the fatty side. Brandy, ever the know-it-all, suspected Bunny was mistaking the silky texture of high quality meat for fattiness.
