Umm...guess what I had for dinner?...nevermind that was a dumb question. After visiting Sumire earlier today, the only thing on my mind has been Asameshi's Asahikawa shoyu ramen. I originally planned to go tomorrow, but what the heck...I was hungry and they were open.
Shoyu Ramen: If you remember from the last time they were here, the noodles were not very impressive and some even called them the "Achilles heel of the ramen." Well guess what ed, they got better! No more starchy/sticky/pasty texture. They actually meshed with the rest this time. The thinly sliced shabu-shabu-style chashu was better than I remember and the long slender menma was as good as ever. The rustic-nature of an Asahikawa shoyu always gets my blood flowing--and Asameshi Maeda Honpo was no different.
If you missed them in February, you have no excuse to miss them this weekend!
