Update: We have a winner! As flyingcheeseweasel was the first to guess, I was eating at United Provisions. Thanks to all who played. We've contacted Mr. Weasel to see about getting him his prize, but have yet to hear back. (Weasel? Are you out there?)

Original post follows:

It's not quite ramen weather yet — but it's hard to hold fast and wait for the frost when bowls this good are waiting to be consumed. With a thick pork stock, noodles, vegetables and a perfectly boiled egg, it's a filling bowl that will make you glad for the coming winter.

So where am I eating this bowl of ramen? Leave your best guest in the comments section below — not on our Facebook page, not via a tweet — as well as an email address that we can use to contact you. The first reader to correctly identify the restaurant in question will win $20 to Apollonia Restaurant (6836 Gravois Ave., 314-353-1488).

Good luck, and thanks as always for playing!
