Bowl #1: Miso Ramen from Menkou (らーめん 麺好) in Nakano-Fujimicho.
The miso is homemade, but overall the ramen is a tad too normal.
Off to restaurant disneyland!! aka Tenpos Busters.
Oooh I've always wanted one of these!
If you're wondering, I needed to pick up some supplies.
Anyway, on to the next bowl! Yo Nobo! Get the car ready!!
After driving around and getting denied from our intended destination (I mean, who runs out of soup two hours before closing?), we ended up at San San Nana (鶏煮干し 三三㐂 大森) in Oomori.
Bowl #2: Tori Niboshi Soba (鶏煮干そば).
Similar to Nagi Goldengai but with a little less impact.
I didn't think it was that great, but I still gave it a kanshoku.
Nobo got the Ichiban Shibori Tsukemen (つけめん 一番搾り).
Their main shop in Kawasaki is a tsukemen shop. This makes me want to go to Kawasaki.
Not feeling completely satisfied, Nobo and I set out to slurp another bowl. The only problem: We couldn't agree on the next shop. But Nobo was intent on trying Noriya Shokudo (のりや食堂) in Oimachi and since he was driving I let him have his choice--although Noriya did pique my interest after hearing it was Wakayama-style.
Then I had a sip... (Bowl #3: Wakayama-style Chuukasoba)
Hands down the worst bowl I've had this year. For the record, I did eat all the noodles but didn't bother drinking all the flavorless soup. Don't get me wrong, I love Wakayama-style but this bowl was not something to be loved.
After that unexpected disaster, it was time to end the night right.
Bowl #4: Tsukemen from Dyurumen Ikeda (づゅる麺 池田) in Meguro.
づゅる づゅる づゅる！Hands down one of the best tsukemen I've ever had.
So Nobo, you down for bowl #5?... hahaha. 食べすぎだ！
