Ramen. In one moment, anyone would know that this one spot is better than what you can get in America. The noodles are thick for ramen, the soup isn’t the typical USA thick and murky Tonkotsu that seems to fool everyone into thinking Tampopo woman made it, and everything in it, was done just right. It’s at the spot photographed below in Jyugaoka area of Tokyo. One of many great spots.

I ordered the big one.
950 yen.

That’s my friend Kohei who ordered a different one that had cabbage in it.

This is an interesting place. Indotei. It’s owned by Goodsmile. Like Giant Robot has gr/eats, they have Indotei.

Yes, it’s great. Aside from the food being great. Seriously great. They give you individual small bowls to keep the dishes from sharing their juices! Not enough Indian places do this for you, and it’s just one more example of paying attention to detail.

That’s Junko hiding in the shadow.
Check out that naan. I swear it’s gigantic sized. Maybe the length from my elbow to finger tips.

Yes, this was one of the best meals.

That’s Yukie Kito, she produces movies. We’re at a spot called Butaya. Basically “pork shop” in Ebisu. Also at dinner was Ms Fujitani and Mr Mikami.

Noodles at the end. The meal starts off with vegetables and more, and with the leftover broth you can choose rice or noodles. We opted for noodles.
