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...
"We want to drink in Golden Gai!"
I can't argue with that logic. Golden Gai, the drinkinest street in Shinjuku, is also home to one of the best ramen shops in Town. Nagi!
A note of caution, this isn't delicious (it's an ashtray). The ramen on the other hand...
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.
