As I was trying to catch up with all my posts last week, the celebrated rameniac hit me up on gchat to say that he was coming to Japan. It’s about frickin time!! Anyway, before I can get to our historic night, let me tell you what I did during the day.
Kumamoto Ramen Kusenbou is located just a few minutes from my house along Kannana-dori in Izumi. I never realized that there was a ramen-ya there until I just happened to walk by it for the 50th time.
The ramen is definitely Kumamoto-style with its light, creamy tonkotsu soup. I’m not a huge fan but Kusenbou does a decent job of representing.
After a few beers and sharing all of our geeky love that we have for ramen, yup you guessed it, we went to go eat ramen…at Ramen Jiro.
