On a day with more than eight clouds, I walked from Shinsen to Ikejirohashi in the rain to try a popular Shinasoba shop. Yakumo (八雲) is located a stones throw from Warito and apparently (like most Shinasoba shops in Tokyo) has a relation to the more famous Tan Tan Tei in Hamadayama.
The unique thing about Yakumo is that you can choose from two different soups: Black Dashi (黒だし) or White Dashi (白だし). BUT, there's also a Mix Dashi that is a blend of both.
I just went with the Black Dashi Tokusei Wontonmen (黒だし特性ワンタン麺) as this was my first time here.
It was great.
This is definitely shinasoba at its finest.
But does it outdo it's master? Hmm...I'll let you be the judge.
Back at basa I played around with a tonkotsu tsukemen. Wanna try it?
Umm, I thought I saw a ninth cloud around here somewhere...
