Day 1269 (Tokyo):
Being that I will be leaving for LA this afternoon, today would be my last chance to slurp DT before they close forever at the end of the month.
A sad, sad day.
Thank you Kusamura-san. お疲れ様。
This will be a day that I'll remember forever.
Thank you for the countless bowls of happiness.
Thank you for showing me how a true bowl of ramen needs to be appreciated.
After re-reading my first ever post of DT three years ago, my knowledge of ramen and it's history has greatly changed, but my appreciation for this place hasn't.
It's not always about a bowl being the best bowl of ramen you've ever had.
It's about respect. The respect a chef has for the customer and the respect a customer has for the chef.
Okay, off to LA.
I'll see you yesterday!
