Not for the first time this year, it turns out to be vegetable-only Jiro-style ramen. This is really the list of toppings, so it includes pork and kamaboko, but I promise there's no meat going on in the soup.
There is some meat going on at the bottom. I think they called it 'added protein' or something - side orders of gyoza or fried chicken. Huh?
Should we pause to reflect on the majesty of this bowl? The volume? The special wide, flat noodles from Kaikarou? The brown meatiness of the soup? Or should we move on to our side order?
Well, they were delicious at least.
Unfortunately, it was also the point where I started to enjoy the soup and get into the groove.
Did I ever mention my high school nickname?
