Another reason that dreams do come true, Tsukumo Ramen in Ebisu was worth the trek on my last full day in Tokyo. Did I ever mention that Tokyo is the greatest city in the world for ramen? The best ramen from all around the country somehow makes it to Tokyo and there's no need to leave. I'll surely miss this place!
Sometimes the best stuff is the free stuff. One thing I've noticed with the tonkotsu ramen-ya's is that they have a lot of free stuff--great stuff.
Shoyu Tonkotsu Ramen: A tonkotsu ramen with a special shoyu sauce drizzled on top, this ramen was definitely worth the trek. I never thought a shoyu flavor could be so creamy. The toppings (chashu, menma, nori, negi) could have been better, but this is my last day and I'm not going to complain a bit. The noodles were typically thin and delicious. Tsukumo also serves a cheese ramen that I've heard is pretty good, but it'll have to wait.
So I've been debating on whether to pack or visit Bassanova one more time. It's getting late, but then again Bassanova is open late (3am). Maybe I'll pack and then go. Who needs to sleep tonight anyway. We'll see...
