Sorry for the lack of updates lately. I was living at hotel resorts for a summer camp job in decidedly ramen lacking areas of Japan.

Here's Nishio's summertime special.

Ice cold, literally. The addition of a scoop of slushy broth keeps things temperature controlled. Other additions are a scoop of what tasted like Hawaiian poke and some brightly colored peppers.

Nishio is in my top 10. Good vibe, cool owner, and excellent shoyu ramen. Go if you have a chance.

September is going to be an interesting month for ramen. Can a long distance backpacker survive on ramen and energy bars for a week? Stay tuned.
