The first time I ever visited Bassanova, Max was there. Even on repeated visits, Max was there. And when I first started working at Bassanova, Max was also there. For awhile, it was just me and Max. And although I never looked forward to my days with Max, it were those days that turned out to be the most memorable. Max, I know I gave you a hard time, but it was a pleasure working with you. 頑張ってね。
Enough about Max, let’s move on. I always wondered what it would taste like to make 100% wadashi ramen without any tonkotsu. Hmm…okay so that’s what it tastes like…
After work I decided to walk to Umegaoka and grab a bowl at Katsuya (勝や).
I had heard that it tastes just like ET and needed to see for myself.
Well, it’s big! It tastes like ET but it’s not quite ET.
I told you it’s big.
One more day, then Okinawa!!
