with the Family

Wangsimni Station is a massive complex that combines train station + subway stop + shopping mall, including E-Mart + CGV cinema multiplex + indoor water park + array of restaurants, including the Terrace 15 food court.

Japanese Ramen is a Japanese restaurant.  Specializes in, well, ramen.

Shoyu Ramen is a Japanese dish.   It consists of the classic curly flour ramen noodles, often topped with sliced pork, as well as bean sprouts and scallions, all in a simple chicken/pork broth flavored with soy sauce, making it light and savory.  Shoyu ramen is one of the 5 main broth categories.

Did you know: The English term “soy” comes from the Japanese term “shoyu,” which derives from the Chinese “shi (salted bean) yu (oil).”  The Korean term for soy sauce is “gan (seasoning) jang (sauce).”

The shoyu ramen at Japanese Ramen was meh.  Nothing wrong with it, nothing good about it.  Small portion.  But it’s easy for the kids.
