After a crazy day at work the Hubz and I decided to take ourselves out to a new(er) restaurant, HJ House, in downtown Burlington. This little hole in the wall restaurant opened a few months ago and each time we walk past it we always say to each other “I wonder how it is.” Well a few weeks ago we were talking with the owner of a local organic nursery and she was telling us how it was good and inexpensive; we were sold and finally tried it tonight.
As soon as we sat I made sure to ask which ramen bowls were vegan and we were directed to the Vegetable Ramen Bowl and the Curry Vegetable Ramen Bowl. The Hubz and I both ordered the curry one as well as an inari roll and avocado roll. I loved that they gave you the option to have brown rice in the sushi roll; which of course we got.
We started off with some complimentary tea that tasted meh okay not my favorite.
Our sushi rolls which were good but over priced compared to other sushi spots in town.
The Curry Vegetable Ramen was good; I loved that it was filled with veggies and seaweed- a pleasant surprise. The flavor was good but I don’t think I would order the curry one again because the flavor just got to be a little old after awhile, but that’s okay I really didn’t need all the broth anyways.
Overall the we liked the HJ House and will go back again for ramen, however for sushi we will go else where.
