There are a few bowls that I just know I have to slurp before the new year. And Ichifuku's (一福) Irorimen (囲炉裏麺) is one of them. But more importantly I wanted to see Ishida-san and tell her 「良いお年を」.
Being that I was hungrier than usual, I decided to order the mini curry set with my ramen. Wow was I glad that I did! Ishida-san knows her ramen, but she also knows her curry. I can't believe I was missing out on it all these years. By far the best curry I've had at a ramen shop (no offense Murakami-san).
One more day Nobo!! 頑張ろう！
Wow, and can you believe how fast these shiitake have grown?
Two more days until the end of the year. I guess I'll start counting my bowls now...
