Happy Birthday bro!!!
After a quick workout I needed some protein and carbs so I settled on nearby Goukai for some Fat Meat Ramen (太肉らーめん).
Fat Meat = Fat Kakuni!
Then it was off to a local bar for some Anchovy Garlic French Fries.
And as Nobo and I were enjoying our drinks at the bar next to basa, a customer came in with a fat piece of maguro to share with all of us.
But when another customer heard that we worked at the ramen shop next door, he told us that we have to go to Dosanko (どさん子大将) down the street. I've passed by this shop plenty of times. But...I mean...it's a Dosanko. Right? Well sort of. Dosanko might be one of the oldest ramen chains in Japan but this one seems to have earned its independence.
From the outside it's a filthy, dying shop. I guess it's like that from the inside too. Anyway, the locals seem to love it here and I can('t) see why.
|hey dad, didn't you have on of these too?|
I got the shoyu ramen.
And Nobo got the miso.
We also ordered gyoza.
Yup, it's still a Dosanko.
Anyone up for a game of darts?
