To my surprise, I received a letter in the mail regarding a special invite-only pre-opening for the newest shop at the Shinyokohama Raumen Museum.
Replacing the legendary Kurume Taiho for the next few months...
Is Taniguchi Shokudo (谷口食堂) hailing from Kochi, a town in the small island of Shikoku.
Apparently, Kochi is famous for Nabeyaki Ramen.
If you don't know what that is...
Then let's just say it's hot, really really hot.
Each bowl is brought to a serious boil before the noodles are added.
And it's hot.
Really really hot! Did I say that already?
Anyway, there are a few ways to slurp it, but dipping it in the raw egg "sukiyaki-style" was perhaps my favorite.
Very, very interesting.
Thank you Nakano-san for the invitation!!
You didn't think I'd leave after only one bowl did you?
Ahhh...Karamiso Ramen from Ryushanhai.
Alright, now we can leave.
