I have the day off from my internship so am here at Buen Dia, slumped in my swivelly chair, legs stretched out in front of me, with KCRW streaming through the speakers.  Am catching up on work, suddenly feeling very organized and clear-headed.  A very different state of mind from the last few weeks.

Have a craving for some ramen goodness from Shin Sen Gumi, a little Japanese noodle haus in Orange County.  There, the noodles are flown in from Japan, the spicy miso is made from scratch and it takes three whole days to make the soup stock.  You could say it’s a superior noodle venue.  And it’s not just about the sublimity of those thin white noodles, there’s more to it than that.  Much more.  But I’ll devote a whole entry to this matter some time in the coming months.

For now, I’m content to gobble up some roasted rosemary potatoes laced with sweet, mellow garlic cloves from Bi-Rite’s deli.
