Shot with my Fujifilm X100V.

Kim and I took a lazy Sunday lunch break to Ginza Ramen and Poke just down the street from our house and it was nice to finally be able to sit outside and have a leisurely meal.  It was warm but not too terrible and I'm glad that fall weather finally seems to be poking through the summer heat. 

Ginza (it's a chain) showed up in our area (right across from the YMCA on Potranco) about 3 months ago and I think it's a pretty good place to get a half-decent bowl of ramen or a plate of yakisoba noodles when you're craving it.   My current favorite is the tonkatsu base with the pork belly -- it's a great / hearty combination when you're really wanting comfort food.  As we get into the colder months, it'll be GREAT soup weather. 

Today we tried the shrimp won-tons, edamame and yakisoba (Kim had beef and I wanted the pork) noodles.  Good stuff. 

Regarding the accompanying shots: I'm really happy with the built in ND filter on my X100V because it was pretty bright / overcast outside and it allowed me to stop down to around f2.8 for the food shots without blowing out the exposure highlights.  Great colors and film simulation by Fuji as usual.  I touched up the sharpness on the jpgs a bit and then posted.  Easy peasy.
