MIST in Omotesando

C x N = MIST?

A lot of thought went into this, and according to the waiter, the C is for Chabuya and the N is for Natural. Chabuya is a ramen shop. I haven't adventured to it yet. But this was my second time to MIST, the glamorous shop in Omotesando Hills.

Omotesando Hills, where one pair of $300 jeans for the price of two.

Sushi style noodles?

Interesting. Going clockwise, we have tartar sauce, random fish roe, tai, and salmon roe.

Good, but for 1000 yen, I could go to my local sushi spot and have a feast.

A nice bowl of shoyu. Last time I had the salt ramen with pickled plum, and I'd recommend that for the novelty factor.

The attention to detail is here. The shoyu and salt ramen each have a different bowl, which is supposed to enhance the particular flavors.

By the way, here's the salt bowl.

You can get a 5000 yen ramen set menu, which comes with 5 or 6 courses. Interesting, but since the ramen is pretty standard, I won't be dropping that kind of cash anytime soon.
