Taiyo Ramen

I've eaten there countless times since 1995 or so, when I used to take my mom there during my vacations. (I lived on the Big Island in the '90s.) They were across from KFC on Kapiolani back then. Why do I still take photos of their food? It's a strange fixation of mine. Maybe it's a way of reassuring myself that they are still reliable, the food is still simple and awesome, and that my unconscious desire for quality control is satisfied with every visit.

Below, chicken curry on rice, gyoza (best on Earth) and their unique smoky chili paste. I like to add vinegar and gyoza sauce to mine. Da best!
