When hanging out with ramen friends, even when you're not going to eat ramen, it's easiest to meet up at a ramen shop first. Tonight, Tamayakata (らーめんたま館) in Tachikawa was our meeting point.
Then it was off to dinner nearby.
This dinner was only dicey because it was with Koitani-san and the Saikoro team + Hiroshi. Jiraigen Syndicate!!!
Dinner was so much fun that Boom and I missed our last train. We did manage to get to Fujimigaoka though. And the first thing I did when we got there was search for ramen. Ookubo (つけ麺 らーめん おおくぼ) was the closest shop still open so we hopped in for a bowl.
Boom got the Shoyu Ramen.
And I got the Atukara Tsukemen (あつからつけ麺).
I'm assuming atsukara means hot & spicy...
Cuz this separate dipping bowl was pretty hot and spicy.
Just add a few spoonfuls of soup...
And viola! Another tsukedare.
Okay I'm way to drunk for this. I think I see something in the bamboo forest.
Do you see it too?
