crab meat broiled in mayonnaise glaze with spicy japanese red pepper, tobiko & radish sprouts
i didnt like this at all. very bad choice. the crab meat was very dry. the mayo was too overpowering.

we totally regret driving all the way to portland to try miyake. def hyped up. they are famous for ramen but we werent in the mood to try any. maybe we ordered the wrong items, but we didnt like most of the stuff we ordered. very fusion americanized place. extremely disappointed by their food.

have you had the ramen here? how was it?
