最強ラーメン烈伝

A ramen festival isn't necessarily a great place to have the best ramen, but it's a great place to have a ramen adventure. I put the word out, and on Monday, June 21st, about a dozen ramen loving friends met up to try a few dozen bowls.

The shoyu from Nagao was fishy and simple.

The thick broth at Naoji was great, but that massive piece of pork was a big let down. A proper grill could have done the job, the blowtorch left it practically raw.

Everyone who tried the miso from DoMiSo was disappointed.

TETSU was good, but nothing like the original shop.

Shichisai was decent.

Even though the ramen wasn't as great as visiting one of the main shops, it's a good place to sit and have a few beers from the convenience store.
