A couple days ago I received an email from a reader stating that he'd be in Tokyo for a few days and wanted to know if I could meet up. If I have the time, I never decline.
So where did we go? Menya Musashi (麺屋武蔵 新宿本店) in Shinjuku. If you ask around, Musashi is often credited with starting the so-called 'ramen boom' that continues to sweep through Japan at a frenetic pace. The last time I ate here was over six years ago. Before the blog and before the subprime world went kerplunk. Did I like it? Yeah it was good, but not really worth remembering.
So a refresher course was in need.
The noodles were outstanding.
And the kakuni was tender.
But the soup was a little too sweet for my tastes. Nevertheless, I did what I do best. I drained it.
It was great to meet you Andrew! Good luck with med school!!
