Today is a special day. A very special day. For the assistant will be arriving from France. Unfortunately, her plane got delayed 9 hours. But fortunately, it means I’ll have time to try Ichijo-san’s Sunday special.
Ichijo-san is definitely a ramen G. He comes out before he opens, slurping a bowl of today’s special and claims “there’s no mistake, this is an effing good bowl!” He even recognized me standing in line and said “oh! you made it. today’s a special ramen you know?”
Okay, so let me get to this special ramen. It’s a triple soup. Yes, triple! The first part is Ise-ebi (Japanese spiny lobster). The second part is a blend of corn, chicken, and apple. And the third, poured on top of the noodles at the end, is a feverishly cooked crab.
Ichijo-san’s helper was an equally cool dude. He jokingly chided me for not coming in when he works. Friendly dude, but he still scares me. haha.
Voila! I was instructed to take a sip of the top layer first before mixing. Mmm…the crab soup is something else. This whole ramen was something else. There’s only one way to describe it. Amazing!
According to Ichijo-san, I just earned my black belt. Yeah baby!
On our way out to dinner we noticed a ruckus over by Okinawa Town so I immediately called Jake-san to see if everything was okay. Apparently the apartment above Syuri Seimen caught fire, but everyone seemed to be okay.
Speaking of Jake-san, hmmmm. Isn’t that my pic? hahaha. And I think I was the one who coined Yabayaki! Oh well. Gotta love Jake-san.
Welcome home…I missed you.
