Kenshiro flew into Tokyo last night just so we could go here...
The new Mikawaya Seimen noodle factory. And just like the last time, the only pictures I could take were in the men's restroom. haha. Anyway, this factory is amazing. Amazing!
After a tour and an inspiring meeting with the Mikawaya boss, he took us to Bario (らーめん バリ男 吉祥寺店) in Kichijoji.
"Ramen of the man, by the man, for the man. (Ladies also welcome)"
Bario is another shop that they call Jiro-kei or Jiro-inspired.
It's a beauty.
And for those of you who live in LA, the soon-to-be open Tsujita Annex will feature a ramen based on this one.
A man always finishes the entire bowl. hahah.
The rest of the day was spent at Nakamuraya...
And after a quick meetup with Jiraigen Boss...
It was back to Bassanova so Kenshiro could sample our noodles.
And then we partied.
