久しぶりラーメン (Revisiting some old spots)

After a 90 minute bicycle ride adventure:


Rakuraku in Kichijoji.

After a couple English lessons, a 45 minute bicycle ride, and a Guiness:


Botan in Takadanobaba.

The thing is, I really enjoyed both of these the first time around. Really really liked em. But this time, they were both lackluster. This happens a lot I've found. A shop is great in round one, but round two is a let down. Any theories?

A few shops have been stellar every time. Ones that come to mind are Ippudo, Ivan, and Bankara.
