News Flash! The awesome team over at newyork-tokyo.com have put together an NYT GO: RAMEN tour "exploring Tokyo through ramen!" for 7 days from March 23-29. So if you live in New York and have the time you should definitely do it! AND the tour makes a stop at Bassanova!!
I woke up and began the day with a white-eyed look at the ramendb and was surprised to learn that Mejiro (七重の味の店 めじろ) was only a few stops away in Yoyogi. I then remembered how Nate had tried it just over a year ago so I decided to go check it out too. Speaking of Nate, I miss that fool and his detailed posts! Come back to Tokyo yo!
Mejiro serves a decent bowl of simple shoyu ramen. Somehow though, it tasted extremely similar to Jiraigen.
With purportedly "seven layers of flavor," there was a lot going on in this bowl but not enough to deserve an applause.
I'd have to agree with Nate and say that the fried onions were a bit overpowering. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing.
Anyway, it was time to defrost the green curry ice.
Wow, it works!
