A National Holiday…

Day 20:

Today was a national holiday in Japan so we were open during the day instead of the evening. And being that it was a holiday, the line out our door never let up. Needless to say, we were busy but in a good way. My friend Daizo was in town from the States and he decided to stop by with some of his friends. Let it be known that Daizo is the first friend from the States to come visit me at work. Thanks D! Anyway, I made him my first ever buta tomato meshi and luckily it turned out good with Ivan’s approval. It’s too bad we didn’t take any pictures.


After work, we all went drinking in Shinjuku and had a blur of a time!


2 days off baby!!

  1. Dude, I can't reveal everything that we did. haha. I think all your friends from Chiba have come into eat now. haha. thanks for the props!

  2. To anyone else who goes to visit IVAN RAMEN, get a buta-tomato-meshi with your ramen order. SO FREAKING GOOD. The balance of flavors between the slowly cooked pork and rice, with the contrasting roasted tomato and thinnly cut onions is fantastic. I was so busy enjoying the smell (then the taste) i forgot to take a picture.
    The ramen was absolutely delicious. I can't wait to go back and try the rest of the menu. I already have all my friends in Chiba wanting to go and eat there after my experience.
    Seriously though, no BS, this place is GOOOOOOOD.
