iron chef: ramen!

aqua city ramen
Apparently, now is a really good time for fellow ramen blogger Keizo to be in Japan. The Aqua City mall in Odaiba, Japan has set up (for a limited time only!) a “ramen hall” featuring 6 different regional styles of ramen, complete with iron chef-like profiles of the chefs behind the ramen. Personally, I would love to try the there’s-plenty-of-chashu-but-where’s-the-ramen ramen at Bannai Syokudou, though the rich black shoyu ramen at Menya Iroha looks darn tempting too. If anyone’s anywhere near Tokyo, and you’re reading this blog, run, don’t walk, to Odaiba! It’s not that far!

    Damn that looks good, any idea how long they’re planning on keeping the ramen hall alive? Hopefully it’ll be there the next time I’m in Tokyo. Check out my ramen site.

    I just got back. The ramen tasted even better because it’s so cold in Odaiba. They said it will be open until August but that could change if it remains popular.

    Ooo, August? Maybe I *will* take a trip to Japan this year after all!
