Broke for lunch and walked past the famous Meiji Jingu baseball stadium, home of the Yakult Swallows. Stopped at a place that is famous for “old-style” ramen and had a bowl of menma ramen (ramen packed with bamboo shoots). I’m glad I didn’t order the large bowl, because the regular alone left me stuffed.
For those (now 4) readers who are still ramen virgins, I’ll lay down some knowledge flakes on you: if you’re not sweating profusely and asking for a bucket to catch the unending stream of snot issuing forth from your schnozz, it wasn’t really very good ramen.
This was good ramen.
