060618 002.jpg中華そば、630円。I read scary stories about how this place is no.1 long-queue ramen shop in Japan, so even I have been curious but gosh no way I am going to wait for hours(literally) for a bowl of ramen. But I followed this person's advice and went just before the shop closed at 3pm(this place doesn't open for dinner) on a weekday, and we only waited for about 10 minutes. I had the basic ramen, my friend had the tsuke-men, where the soup and ramen are separated. Somehow the tsuke-men's soup is sweeter. Both are nice. While I never expected myself to understand the hype about this place, my curiosity is satisfied.

Yeah, the shop is very tiny, and very old, in fact that area is under re-development so the shop is going to move someplace else, that adds to the heat of trying it before that happens. Yeah, definitely not my best 5!(^^;;) Well I am not a big fan of ramen anyway...even though I seem to have it quite frequently.

hahaha the scary long lines is probably what made more of a legend than the actual ramen. Is the interior small? So you would say you've had better ramen before...and seems like it won't even make on your top 5?
