Made it to the Hapa Ramen pop-up yesterday for lunch at the Ferry Building. Let's forget about the ramen for a hot second, and talk about their "random celebrity specials." HELL YAH! How could you resist? The special of the day was...
FREE LINDSAY aka The Lindsay Lohan Sandwich! RAD! Says it's so trashy, we'll love it. Hope it tastes better than Lilo looks right now. Sigh. Oh, Lindsey. Tough life.
Tonkatsu, watercress, mayo, pickles on a gorgeous roll. I didn't taste the fish sauce?
Pork was excellently fried, and the bread sorta puffed down in your hands. This was a delicious sandwich-- not trashy at all! It was actually quite refined, I thought. Borderline classy, even. I would have given it trashy points had it been doused in tonkatsu sauce, which it was not.
I was obsessed with their housemade pickles, especially the jalapaños. I stacked them into my sandwich, producing a sweet heat.
Place was poppin' by noon.
Hope they keep this sandwich on as a special for the next 90 days. FREE LILO!
