Food writer Jonathan Ammons lets us in on his favorite dish du jour.
Half bowls of soup at Heiwa Shokudo: The restaurant has always offered them, but now they’re on the menu: half bowls of Heiwa’s awesome noodle soups! All prepared with a dashi-style stock, the menu includes choices like Geisha (broccoli, carrots, mushroom and bean sprouts), and Medicine Man (corn, crab, shiitake and wakame). At about $10 for a half bowl and a sushi roll, it’s a great, affordable way to build a meal. — Jonathan Ammons
