In celebration of National Shrimp Day on May 10th, San Diego’s favorite spot for authentic Japanese cuisine and ramen is offering a specialty ramen throughout May and June! Stop in to any of Tajima’s five San Diego locations, from East Village to Convoy, to try the delicious Ebi Miso Ramen. Succulent sautéed garlic shrimp, shiitake mushrooms, bamboo shoots, bok choy and green onions paired with our flavorful miso broth will have you wishing this was a permanent menu item! The name for this tasty dish stems from Ebi, which refers to a style of preparing shrimp in Japan, and miso, a traditional Japanese soup or broth typically made from fermented soybeans, sea salt and rice koji. You’ll only be able to try this one-of-a-kind ramen bowl through May, so make plans to dine at Tajima before you miss out! Several locations throughout San Diego
