My Bestie and I had much needed girl time eating ramen noodles, called Futo Buta. The location of this restaurant is in Charlotte, NC and you can find more information HERE. They basically have amazing ramen noodles with fresh ingredients. I’m not talking about the stuff you find on the selves of your local grocery store, 10 packs for a penny. I’m talking fresh and quality ingredients in every warm slurp. Now personally, I have never had authentic ramen before but my palate is pretty good. I like to experience new things even in the form of food. While there we had the Japanese fried chicken with a chili mayo served with a fresh lime and mint… ok pause… can we have a moment of silence for this crunchy piece of heaven they call chicken? Check out these pictures.
Unique Place to Eat Ramen Noodles
I like the eclectic feel of Futo Buta with the rustic steel chairs and the simplistic decoration. We did sit family style here which forced us to talk to our neighbors. The seating was also limited in the inside, so plan accordingly. Let me just say, I love a restaurant that brings a nice bottle of water to the table. I’ll take the over bread any day.
Bring on the Food…and Drinks
Should I just let the pictures speak for themselves? I mean the food was delicious in my trusted opinion . Those little Japanese fried chicken with chili mayo were just pure heaven on my tongue, I’ll be honest, it was my favorite thing I ordered. I would have to wear lose clothing because they were addicting. So on to the Ramen, the combinations of texture from the runny egg to the pork belly gave a good combination. I did feel my Ramen I choose was a little bland, but my bestie a spicier Ramen that I tasted and gave the punch I wanted. We end our girl time and Ramen experience with Futo Buta’s house made ice cream. One is a strawberry basil and the other is a green tea ice cream with drizzled honey. This was a perfect way to end the meal. The flavors were phenomenal.
