After a night of heavy drinking, it was suddenly 3am and we were all craving ramen. Somehow we ended up at Tsukomo Ramen in Tsudanuma, which is in Chiba-ken. I'm not exactly sure how we got there, but when our friend drove by and I saw the neon lights, I'm pretty sure I yelled out "cheeese!!" Oh yeah, did I mention I had today off?
Unfortunately, the Cheese Ramen was all sold out. Dammit!
Instead I got the regular Tonkotsu Ramen. It was okay. Afterwards, I got a ride back to Shinjuku and somehow made it home for a few hours of sleep.
When I finally did wake up, I was still disappointed that I couldn't try the Cheese Ramen earlier so first thing I did was call Brian and make lunch plans at the main Tsukumo branch in Ebisu. There was no way I'd let the cheese elude me this time.
And sure enough, I finally got to try it. One word: WOW! It was better than I thought it would be. The miso-tonkotsu base topped with this mound of cheese was awesome!
Later that night, it was back to Chiba for some more good times with both old and new friends. I'm so glad I get another day off.
