Having exhausted all the ramen shops in my neighborhood, I wound up back at Tenhou to try their kotteri shoyu ramen.
Back fat galore!
It wasn't bad. Although it looked oily and heart-clogging, it wasn't at all. I actually wanted more soup. But I wouldn't want to eat this very often.
Anyway, I have some news that I've been greatly anticipating to share with you. Meet Boom, the newest full-time member of Bassanova!! His full name is Tokubumi, but I prefer to call him Boom (as in 'ramen boom'). He's a Nikkei-American, like me, and has been living in Japan for the last three years. Apparently, he's also been a fan of my blog since before I came to Japan and says I inspired him to make the jump into the ramen world. Awesome! For the past 3 months he had been working at what was L.A. Kohryu (now Kabuki-do). Boom emailed me a few weeks ago asking for the chance to fulfill our open position and after meeting him over a bowl the other day, I was inspired too. Then soon after meeting the rest of the crew, we all agreed that Boom would make a perfect fit. So please join me in welcoming him to the Bassanova crew! Good luck Boom! 頑張りましょう！！
Soon you'll be dreaming about the green curry on a nightly basis.
And then...the boom will be felt around the world...
