Surely this isn't news? Some foods are quite inexpensive and easy to make. As a rule of thumb, I tend to avoid ordering things I can readily make at home, well, and with minimal hassle, unless the place I'm going has a specific reputation for a given dish. I love going out for ramen, because that's a labour intensive, tasty dish: proper ramen soda noodles (that is soda, BTW, not soba) are not easy to make by hand. Moreover, the broth is not a trivial matter either. There is little at Ryu's Noodle House that I can make at home, plus, they do what they do very well. This may not be true for everyone here -- some may have their ramen game solid. But for me, it is well worth it (the prices there are pretty good, mind you, so it's not dirt cheap, but neither is it terribly costly).
