紀和 (Kiwa in Ebisu)



The ramen adventure of the day was almost sidetracked when I met up with fellow ramen bloggers Keizo and Hiroshi. "We just ate ramen, we are not down for another bowl." It was logical, but so was what I did next; ordered another beer. And another. And another. Soon ramen was on their minds. Well played.


And just across the street from the 180 yen-a-beer izakaya was some ramen. Easy.


A simple menu, and 3 bowls of chuka were soon being prepared.


Nice! As you can see, this is a simple bowl. But what you can not see is the aroma. An aroma that had me and my ramen-nut friends nose deep in this bowl. Vegetable essence permeated through every bit.

Unfortunately for Kiwa, it lies firmly in the shadow of nearby AFURI, simply one of the best simple shops in town.
