Winter walk in Collex-Bossy & Ornex

Collex-Bossy and Ornex are two small towns located next to each other but on different sides of the France / Geneva border. Last Christmas, I went on a short walk in the area.

Yuzu Shoyu Ramen at Yukiguni in Geneva

Yuzu Shoyu Ramen, with additional (hard-boiled) egg.

At CHF27 (€22 or ¥3100), this was the most expensive ramen I have ever had. So was it worth it? Not really I think: It was not great and didn’t hold a candle to the yuzu shoyu ramen I had at Afuri. Maybe I should have stuck with the classics (Miso or standard Shoyu)…
