Recently, a few fellow adventurers have joined me on my hunt for great ramen in Tokyo. I get random emails from blog readers who plan on a Tokyo visit, and I'm always happy to meet. I wanted to take today's new friends, a couple of girls from Texas, to Fuunji. But then...

Today I ordered a side of sansho pepper oil. More than just spicy rayu, these are sometimes known as numbing pepper.

I didn't get this in previous visits.

I will get it in the future.

Being Golden Gai, might as well have a drink with your noodles.
