ムタヒロ (Mutahiro in Kokubunji)

中華そば ムタヒロ

Mutahiro was a recommendation from the staff at Nagi, a surefire indication that it will be good.

The staff have paid their dues, working at both Nagi and Gamushara in the past.

What's the concept here? Boisterous dudes in farmer hats and overalls with big goofy grins? You bet!

The ramen comes in three varieties. ワハハ (wahaha) - a niboshi tinged bowl of fat and fish. ガハハ (gahaha) - a chicken soup in the same manner. アハハ (ahaha) - the shop's tsukemen offering. A week or so after eating the wahaha, I was told that the gahaha is the one to try.

Regardless of ordering the lesser recommended of the two, wahaha was as great as expected. Not as much back fat as Gamushara (when they serve their back fat covered shoyu), and not as much niboshi flavor as Nagi, but you can taste the master's training here.

I love it!
