風来居 (Furaikyo in Shinjuku)

風来居

Happy New Year everyone.

2004 is going to be a good one, I can tell. Judging by the recent trends in ramen, advancements in the instant stuff, and a newly opened ramen museum in Yokohama, this humble food is finally going to get popular!

Looking at the recommended shops within walking distance of my apartment (circa 2004), Furaikyo looked to be the best that I hadn't slurped yet. It was also the only one I hadn't slurped yet, but that is besides the point. The tonkotsu-shio blend looked positively warming, and the recent temperature in Tokyo required hot food.

The spicy version had a lot of Korean flavors in it. Peppy, but nothing to cause any sort of capsaicin-induced pain. Go for something with extra pork here, it was the one thing that stood out the most.

See you in 2005!
