I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

I really felt like I stumbled upon the next great food find when I saw a modest special on the menu at Takashi. I’ve heard of ramen bowls and ramen burgers but this was the first ramen quesadilla I had seen. And it was great – also a riff on a Japanese okonomiyaki pancake, it was comprised of crisp ramen noodles packed with chewy beef tendon, bold shiso leaf, and aged manchego cheese. And instead of guacamole and salsa, it was topped with the usual okonomayaki garnishes: bonito flakes, Japanese mayo, and seaweed.
