Quick run out to the slopes in the morning while conditions were still good. Our ski-in/ski-out chalets would've been nice about a month ago with snow on the ground... this time of year, not so great. Ran up Cornice, over to Mill, got a workout on Dry Creek and High Five, then finished up over on Chair 12, which was surprisingly decent despite its lower elevation.
Packed up and left, bought way too much bread at Schat's Bakery in Bishop, and arrived back in LA.
Went to the newly-opened Tsujita LA ANNEX for dinner. The tonkotsu ramens have gotten richer, fattier, and heavier the past few years (Ramen Yamadaya and Tatsu Ramen are two notorious examples), Tsujita LA ANNEX takes it one step further. The noodles are almost as thick as udon, and the broth is so brown and thick it reminded me of gravy.
Super thick char shu (BBQ pork) too. Some love it, this wasn't quite my style. A metric ton of bean sprouts too, a bit excessive-- but a nice compliment to the heavy broth. The spicy tuna rice bowl was also only passable, the one at Daikoukoya is much better quality and taste in the tuna.
Still a fun experience though, despite our waitress being unable to count or even use a calculator (she screwed up the table next to ours as well), and as a brand-new place, rough edges are expected. They were empty when we arrived, but by the time we left, they were packed out the door and into their nifty outdoor waiting area in the parking lot. For what is a modest space, they did a nice job.
