  • Niboshi Ramen Rarara
  • On one lazy Sunday I needed to get out of my house, and used that as an excuse to hit up a shop outside my normal radius. I visite

  • Daiki Men
  • Another day, another Taiwan maze soba shop. This time in the restaurant floor in a random building in Umeda Daiki Men popped up, and so I stopped in.最近台湾まぜそば屋さんが多いですね。今回梅田のどっかのビルのレストラン階で「ダイキ麺」が出てきました。The BowlA nice minor twist on the standard formula, the noodles here were flat and chewy, and the whole bowl had aromas of anchovy.

  • This has been a month of traveling. This time I got a chance to visit Nagoya.最近いろいろ旅行しています。今回名古屋に行きました。Ogura toast小倉トーストMiso katsu味噌かつHitsumabushiひつまぶしChicken wings手羽先And of course a trip to a ramen shop.

  • Sosaku Ramen Style Hayashi
  • One of my favorite shops Mitsukabozu has grown big enough to warrant one of its members leaving and forming their own shop. Tonigh
    t's shop was just that, Sosaku Ramen Style Hayashi. Like Mitsukabozu, they specialize in miso ramen, and though there were a
    variety of options, I went with the Hokkaido style miso ramen.大好きなみつか坊主で終業した人が最近独立して

  • Menya NOROMA
  • Another trip to Nara! This time I was able to stop at one of the most famous shops, Menya Noroma. We waited for about an hour in t

  • Seimendokoro Kuraki
  • After my trip to Ehime, my friend and I visited nearby Kochi.愛媛に行ってから高知に行きました。Kochi Castle高知城Bonito tatakiかつおたたきAfter all that food I still needed my dose of ramen. As with Ehime, I chose the highest rated ramendb shop, Kuroki, and ordered their beef motsu tsukemen.いろいろ食べましたけど、やっぱり高知のラーメンを味見したかったです。愛媛と同じでramendbの一番評価がいい店を [続きを読む]
  • Hyota
  • On my second day in Matsuyama I went to see the sights.引き続き松山の観光をしていました。Matsuyama Castle松山
    城Dogo onsen道後温泉Ehime tai meshi愛媛鯛めしAfter my failed attempt to visit the previous night, I made it into Hyota, a
    highly ranked shoyu shop. I got the chuka soba along with some burdock root and tofu oden, which is apparently a thing in Ehime.

  • Shuhei
  • More traveling! It's been a while since I'd been to Shikoku, one of Japan's four main islands. Continuing my quest
    to visit every prefecture, my friend and I embarked on a trip to Ehime and Kochi, two prefectures in Shikoku.We arrived at night,
    so we just had a few hours to hang around the city. I had picked out a ramen shop: Hyota, but unfortunately it happened to be clos

  • Maction Planet Interview
  • This is a rare non-ramen post, but I was recently interviewed by Maction Planet, a Bespoke Tokyo Travel and Apparel provider that
    specializes in private tours of Tokyo. Check it out here:Mac on Tokyo: Benjamin Weber - MACTION PLANET [続きを読む]
  • Ramen Jin
  • One day I'll make it to all of the ramen shops in Nishinakajima. Today I made my way to Ramen Jin, a shop with a variety of o
    ptions that specializes in my favorite style: miso. I ordered their recommendation for first timers, Miso no Gyakushu.いつか西

  • Kibunya
  • Most nights when I head to ramen shops, I visit a shop I've deliberately looked up and am interested in. Nights like this one
    , though, have me visiting some random shop early in the morning after a night of drinking. Wakayama-style ramen shop Kibunya was
    the shop I stumbled into, just hungry enough to eat their choi-men small size ramen.普通はラーメン屋さんに行くと、

  • Ramen Kuni
  • Today's shop Ramen Kuni replaces shop Bikkuri Gamu Champon in a side street by Daikokucho. Kuni prides itself on Hiroshima ko
    ne, a cut of beef specific to the region. It is from a part of the cow's front legs, and is filled with collagen and gelatin,
    supposedly making it good for your skin. At any rate I was ready to try some so I ordered the standard shoyu.今日の店「ら

  • Kitahachi Tantan
  • The Osaka Ekimae Buildings are always a good place to explore for food, ramen or otherwise. As much as I think I know the scene in
    Umeda, there are always shops in the basements of these buildings that I haven't heard of. Today I visited Kitahachi Tantan,
    a tantanmen specialty branch of the Kitano Hachibantei chain. I ordered their standard tantanmen, the Oriental Noodle.大阪駅

  • Ramen Bakappuru
  • I don't make it out of Osaka city very often, and there are a lot of shops in the burbs that I haven't visited. I'm
    always excited, then, when shops decide to move closer to the action. Ramen Bakappuru was technically in the city, but now moved
    to the convenient location of Awaza, where I was able to visit it easily. They had a chicken paitan, but the owner recommended the
    unusual bonito ramen, so [続きを読む]
  • Ramen Kasumi
  • One of the ever changing shops in Nakazakicho has changed again. First it was shrimp tsukemen shop Typhoon Gang. Then it was jiro-
    style shop Ginjiro. Now it's the second shop of fantastic Awaza shio Kasumi. A bit of a difference from the light bowls from
    the first shop, the new branch specializes in thick chicken shio ramen.中崎町でよく変わる店がまた変わりました

  • Menya Yamahide
  • Taiwan maze soba shops are everywhere. After showing up in Kitashinchi, Shin Osaka, and Shinsaibashi, they have finally inched eve
    n deeper into Minami, showing up right by JR Namba. Yamahide is a chain, and as far as I can tell this is their first Osaka shop.
    This branch was extremely small, with only five seats and that wonderful feeling like you're always being watched by the mana

  • Kikuhan
  • Nakazakicho ramen alert! This little area of town is known for its boutiques and coffee shops, and among ramen otaku like myself,
    for ramen shops too. The chef at Kikuhan comes from nearby local chain Teru. Like Teru, Kikuhan puts forth a rich bowl, but unlike
    Teru, this bowl has no fish, just pork and chicken.中崎町ラーメンアラート!この地区は服屋さんとカフェで

  • Ramen Expo - Day 3
  • In my previous two trips to the Ramen Expo, my friends and I collected enough stamps to get two free bowls of ramen. I hadn't
    planned on making a third visit, but I guess I had no choice.前回と前々回Ramen Expoに行った時にスタンプを集め
    です。This trip I gave in completely to my impulses. Two bowls of miso. The fir [続きを読む]
  • Mutahiro
  • Fukushima is a place I try to frequent, but there still somehow are a handful of shops that have managed to elude me. Tonight I made an attempt to go to Kineko.福島によく行きますけど、なぜかまだ行けていない店が何軒かあります。今回きねこという店に行こうと思っていました。Time for Plan B. Another shop on my list was Mutahiro, a sardine ramen shop from Tokyo. I had enjoyed the bowl I had at the Ramen [続きを読む]
  • Ramen Expo - Day 2
  • I had already made a trip to the Ramen Expo in 2015, but that was just because the ramen shop I originally wanted to go to was clo
    sed. It was time for my requisite trip to the Ramen Expo, and I was happy to have a chance to try more of the shops.Ramen Expoに

  • Tori Soba 145
  • A new shop had just opened on Dotonbori, which is almost too easy to visit. I'm always happy when I can visit a shop on its f
    irst day, as I was able to with chicken ramen shop Tori Soba 145, the last part pronounced "hiyoko". I went with the sta
    ndard tori paitan soba, though I was tempted by the shio and miso versions.新しい店が道頓堀でできたので、すごく

  • Ramen Expo 2015 - Day 1
  • I had the afternoon off from work, and whenever I have a half day I think about what out-of-the-way ramen shop I can visit. This t
    ime I made my way to Tsumugu, popular shop in Minami Ibaraki.仕事の午後休みを取って、どこか普通にいけないラ

  • Rokkun Billy S1
  • When I was in Tokyo I was recommended to go to Rokkun Billy S1, the new shop formed by Junichi Shimazaki, ramen legend and former
    manager of 69'N'ROLL ONE. I'm embarrassed I wasn't even aware of it, but at least it was in Hyogo, where I rar
    ely venture. At any rate, I no longer had any excuse to have not visited, so I took the train to the suburbs of Amagasaki. I went
    with the standard shoyu: the A [続きを読む]
  • Japanese Soba Noodles Tsuta
  • Continuing my latest Tokyo trip, my friend kicked me out of his place early on a Monday morning as he went to work. Normally I&apo
    s;d be annoyed, but this was a perfect opportunity for me to visit recently Michelin starred Tsuta. Before they got their star, th
    ey used to just have long lines. Now, though, you need to visit extra early in the morning to pick up a ticket.東京の旅を引

  • Bassanova
  • Bassanova will always stand strongly in my mind as one of the early bowls that pushed me along on my quest for ramen. It was one o
    f the great ramen shops I discovered when I moved to Tokyo, and on one rainy day a friend and I ventured out to try it. Living awa
    y from Tokyo so long, it has been hard to try it again, but on one of my semi-regular trips I decided I needed to make an effort t
    o stop by. [続きを読む]
