After another record-breaking Saturday at Bassanova, we were on the verge of running out of our fried negi topping. And since Sunday is not a delivery day for our yaoya (greengrocer), I went to go pick up the vegetables myself. But on the way, I stopped at Chukasoba Banya in Shimo-Takaido for some rich shoyu ramen.
Banya’s shoyu ramen is gritty and grossly good. That’s as best as I can describe it.
You will probably hate it or love it. No in between.
Later this evening, big boss came in from Fukuoka and told us to close shop so we can all go drinking. No arguments here. So please accept my apology if you came to Bassanova after 11pm. We were quenching our thirsts in Shimo.
Like every good boss, he ended the night/morning by buying us all a bowl of ramen at Kashira.
From what I can remember, it was the perfect bowl at the perfect time.
But obviously I couldn’t remember much. 🙂
