I’ve seen floating sushi 🍣 but sliding noddles 🍜? 🎥 @kotravellers .
What you see here is Nagashi Somen! 🤯 Which is a special way of serving the thin white noodle. The noodles travel down a sliced bamboo pipe with flowing cold water. You then have to catch the noodles with chopsticks before they pass by you or are snatched up by someone else 😋 There is also a cold dipping sauce that you dunk them in before eating.
Lastly! When the red noodles come out it means your time is over ☹️
Yooooo, a new ramen spot opened up in San Leandro, and it's GOOD! @angry_ramen is the sister restaurant of Angry Fish. Today is their first day of soft opening. Currently they only have two ramen options available on their menu, but more to come in the near future!
Our verdict: Thumbs up! We enjoyed every bit of our black garlic tonkotsu ramen. Our pork belly was melt in your mouth tender, and the broth was flavorful and to my liking. We love that you can adjust the saltiness and richness of the broth. Our only critique is that there wasn't enough UMPH! in their "normal" garlic level—but good news, you can adjust that, too!
here’s a quick and easy meal idea for you guys! chicken ramen bowls with sautéed mixed mushrooms, soft boiled eggs, pan seared chicken breast, and spicy scallions! whether you are new to my page or have been around for a while, you know i LIVE for easy af treats and meals that taste 💯💯💯—this is one of them! to make 2 servings, here’s what you need:

Chasyumen(ramen noodles with roasted pork fillet) ¥900
@ Syokuji-dokoro Shino
Gtanda(Gotanda TOC Building), Tokyo
This ramen is the ideal one for people who were bone in Showa era.
It’s very normal and nostalgic, but good shoyu(soy sauce) base with fish broth.
Roasted pork fillet is made by brand pork in Kyushu area. It was soft and rich taste.
Their most popular menu is called “Nikushichi”, I wanna try it next time(But I wanna eat this ramen again, mmm…!).
There’s a free bus from Gotanda station to Gotanda TOC build.
So maybe I can just go there for just eat it.
This is my twelveth drawing for Inktober. My favourite type of food is Japanese. So here is the drawing of a sushi, Japanese fried tofu and my favourite ramen in a battle. Do you like Japanese food? Hope you like this drawing. Thank you.
- - TOKYO - -
Sorry for the radio silence the last 2 weeks. I've just got back from a lovely work trip (my other job) in Tokyo and it's taken a few days to get over the jetlag. .
This is not a design related post but who doesn't like checking out pictures of Tokyo? Most of the photos in this carousel are from a one day trip before all the meetings and event prep started and there really was much more to explore. A good excuse to go back one day especially as I missed the opportunity to drive around Tokyo in a red go-kart dressed like a Super Mario Bros character.
The one day that I did get to go exploring though, I visited the Senso-Ji Temple in Akasuka where it wasn't wierd to hire and walk around in a Kimono. The best food we found was on a little side street off the beaten tourist trap tracks. We then got to see Shibuya crossing during the daytime and night time when it get's super busy. Tokyo does look it's best at night.
Whilst searching for the Harajuku style girls in Takashita Street we stopped by the Kawaii Monster Cafe for a monstreous sparkling wine drink with I think jelly?? Definitely a fun, quirky atmosphere.
One of the best nights was actually at our event's farewell party watching a performance by Drum Tao. They were amazing and really gave us and the delegates an outsanding final farewell.
Next time I go back I would love to visit Akihabara Electric Town, Mount Fuji, one of the many animal islands, an onsen in Hakone and probably much more.
As you may have heard, there was a terrible Super Typhoon that hit Japan over the weekend. A lucky escape for some of us as we were told a few days before flying to keep on alert for the typhoon updates. But some who stayed out longer had to reschedule flights to get home sooner or wait for the storm to pass. And not only did they have to sit through a super typhoon they also experienced an earthquake. I'm not an expert at typhoons as apparantly slept through one at 5am whilst in Tokyo. Harigato Tokyo!
I love hitting the gym for a number reasons, one of many would be me over here in the middle of the night guilt free eating a bowl of ramen and watching Cold Case Files. Buddy, I ain’t even made at it. In fact this is me living my best life... at 2 am. Stay legit, keep it real cause
you’re awesome just being you! 🍜
