Short stories: Dosukoi No.6, fried chicken on top
They’ve reconfigured the tables at Dosukoi Japanese Noodle Bar in Allendale Square, Perth CBD so more people can fit into the tiny space. Every day that I walk by at lunch time (they’re open Monday to Friday), the place is packed. Looking at the crowd hunched over their bowls with not a spare chair last week on Thursday, I didn’t hesitate to order my lunch takeaway: No.6, fried chicken on top. I was the third in line to order and four bowls of ramen came out of the kitchen before mine, but I received my order in around 10 minutes. Pretty reasonable for the rush hour.
Yeah, it’s silly to take something deep-fried and crispy and soggify it with soup, but boy, it was good. After sucking up the soft noodles and destroying all the flotsam, I lifted the bowl to my lips and drank up the tasty broth.
As I slurped up my No.6, I hatched a plan for my next bowl, which will be No.4, soft pork on top. Do you think about your next meal while you’re eating the current one?
