Today was a strange day. I think tensions were running rampant throughout the air for relatively no reason at all. Well there may have been a reason, but it was just fricken strange. Culture clash maybe? Anyway, I needed some comfort and I knew just where I wanted to go. Ramen Tetsuya hails from Sapporo but oddly enough their specialty is not Miso--it's Shoyu! Kotteri Shoyu!
Now that's what I'm talking about! Sapporo-style noodles in a hot kotteri shoyu soup with moist mouth-watering chashu and a luscious hanjuku egg. F*** yeah!!
The most beautiful girl came into work today. She was visiting from New York and had heard of Ivan Ramen from a friend. Damn, I wish I could have got her number. Anyway, back to the beauty at hand. Isn't this egg just mesmerizing?
Basil also came into Ivan's today to say his last goodbye before heading home. Have a safe flight homie. We had some good times raising the roof! haha.
So yeah, this was a great bowl and a fitting end to a strange fricken day. Happy Seijin No Hi to all you 20-year-olds out there. Enjoy it while you can!
P.S. I'm finally over my cold...I think...
