long night. After two izakayas, I just couldn't resist the Shinagawa ramen street on the way back to the station. At least I was able to split a bowl with someone, which in theory helped with the calorie count. In practice, don't be silly.
Tetsu is a really popular place. I mean, #14 nationally on ramendb as I write this. This is not the original - the end game for ramen these days is definitely to branch extensively - but it's still ranked #100 nationally (and second of the Tetsu-related shops). You could argue that the rankings are too skewed in favor of heavy, porky, fish-mixed soups, or you could get on with getting people seated like this guy was. Respect. Didn't blink when we asked to share a bowl.
All that walking and fooding and hot-rocking is enough to tire anyone.
