I often get lost in a bowl of ramen. Instead of trying to meticulously analyze the ingredients of what I am slurping, I often just let my mind loose as it begins to dream about anything and everything. Within that ten minutes it takes to finish a bowl, I enter a relaxed state that puts any worries to rest. Perhaps that's why I can eat it everyday without getting sick of it. Ramen is my drug...
Anyway, I was back at Ryo Tan Tei once again getting lost in their wonton men. It makes me miss Wonton Forest.
At work, I feasted upon this Tora Shokudo Nama Ramen that Komuro-san brought back with her after visiting her hometown.
Tora Shokudo is probably the most famous of ramen shops in Shirakawa. I can't wait to go to the actual shop someday. Until then, this nama ramen will have to do.
The soup is a solid shoyu that makes me want to try the real thing even more. And the noodles, even in instant form, scream Shirakawa. Thanks コムタン!
Do you ever get lost in food?
