The lid came off our bowl of miso ramen soup ($6.50) from Kiku Sushi, and it was instant love. Its red and green peppers smelled so fresh, like they had been cut right before the delivery man left with our order. The broth was light and comforting (a huge plus when you’re starting to feel a fall cold come on) and not overly salty. Pair the soup with an avocado salad ($5.00) and you’ve got the makings of a stellar midday meal.
