The first time I've ever had this exact bowl of udon was maybe... 5 years ago? It was pretty expensive and I was on a 'trying different package ramen adventure'. I really liked it but it was too much to pay for compared to the 24 pack for 12 bucks deals on other ramen.
Now my mom buys them for me ^_^ 6 bowls for around 13-14 bucks. Still really expensive to me but it's pretty cheap if you think of it as having one bowl per meal, which is less then 2.50 a bowl.
I'll let you guys in a little secret. I just ordered a wide angle + macro lens, so be expecting some nice pictures :D! Lots of things are happening at the moment so I apologize for not being able to go out to eat :( but I'll do some junk stuff for now till I am able to eat once again ^_^
