You ran into your old high school friend a few weeks ago and they gave you one of those “We should totally catch up soon!” lines. You figured they probably wouldn’t follow up, but now here you are planning a dinner. Instead of doing the classic wine-and-cheese combo, take them to Terakawa. For a bowl of ramen in West Philly you can’t do much better, and the service is super fast, so you can get in and out before their life updates become more painful than listening to the Liberty Mutual jingle on loop.
