A Ramen Restaurant - Alex's Dinner Conversation



Song:  Charlie Brown Medley

Group:  The Piano Guys





We tried a new restaurant tonight called...
Momiji Ramen.

It is just 10 - 15 minutes away from home.

Alex likes Ramen so...
Momiji Ramen was where we went.

As Alex has the most limited palate range...
and because he is working the hardest...
his vote for where we eat out usually carries the most weight.

My wife has the next most limited palate...
and so her vote usually carries the second most weight for where we eat out
(plus Alex loves pretty much anything his mother does).

I simply love almost any type of food...plus...
I can always eat out by myself when Alex is at school
whenever I get a strong craving for a particular type of food  :)


It had a very relaxed and simple layout and design.

They had a variety of, not only Ramen...
but of selected other delicious dishes.


Maybe once or twice a year or so...
Alex will have a soda to drink...
as a special treat.

The only type he will drink is Ramune
(a Japanese soda).

He is trying to pop the glass ball from the top in this picture
(this drink is unique in that there is a small glass marble
at the top which seals the gases and liquid inside...
and which must be popped to a small inside chamber...
using the included plastic plunger, before the beverage may be enjoyed).




Alex had gotten the Karaage Chicken and Gyoza appetizers...
along with a soya based Ramen.




I had gotten the Tonkatsu plate...


and a cold Ramen dish.


My two plates.

The two appetizers are Alex's...not mine...
I don't want you to think I am some sort of gluttonous pig!  :) :)


Alex had gotten the Mango Mochi ice cream for dessert.


During dinner...
Alex made an analogy comparing his love interest
(he has liked this particular girl at school since the 6th grade)...
with the main characters of the Korean Drama...
Winter Sonata.

This particular girl at his school presently likes someone else...
and just like in the drama...
 so did the girl...
until she had gotten to know the main character.

Alex is hoping his love interest will...one day...notice him.

One of the driving forces behind him doing well in his studies...
is his desire to one day...find true love...
someone pure of heart whom he may give undying devotion...
and to be such a man as to be worthy...
of her undying devotion.

Alex's heart is leading his mind in the right direction...
 and his mind is planning ahead to create conditions where
he may one day satisfy his heart.



SEE...

Demonstrated effectiveness of positive modeling in a child's life 
through a good Korean or Japanese Drama  :)

Now all he has to do is wait until University to think too seriously
about his pure hearted woman  :)

    1. The only thing Alex learns from his parents interaction is how to form an effective argument...
      arguing is what we do most of the time :)

      Do you know how I know the Korean Dramas demonstrate an effective way of living life...
      no matter how many I see? They always turn out well in the end! :)

  3. I usually think of ramen as a lighter meal, but you certainly proved me wrong! :) Looks like you found another great restaurant!

    Interesting that Alex has a love interest... well, I guess he is of that age. I hope it doesn't distract him too much. :)

    1. I will especially be looking forward to eating a nice hot bowl of noodles there...when winter comes.

      Alex has always liked particular girls at school. It helps motivate him. He loves to give presentations in front of class in the hopes of impressing a girl he likes at the time in his class :)
