Although I yearn to be with my family and friends back home, I'm also blessed to have relatives here in Tokyo to spend the holidays with. I almost thought I wouldn't be able to eat osechi this year, but my aunt and uncle didn't let that happen. Arigato!
Lasagna!! My aunts lasagna made me feel like I was at home.
But, of course the day wouldn't be complete without some ramen.
With many shops still closed for the new year, Bubuka (ぶぶか 吉祥寺店) was not.
Once again I skipped the abura soba and stuck with the Tonkotsu Ramen.
Yeah it's been a bit lonely, but at least I still have my ramen.
