I was in town, and thought I would stop by that Rock n' Roll 69 shop in Machida. You know, the one where you aren't allowed to speak in the shop. I really want to hate that place, due to the stupid rules, but their ramen was fantastic.
Anyways, out of soup as usual.
A nearby back-alley had a rather spicy looking shop. Shinku's motto is, "Spicy . . . but good."
Sure, it was ok. Just enough spice to kick up the oily, cheesy blob of noodles.
The shop is known, I gathered, for their limited menu items. Doing a monthly, or even bi-monthly gentei ramen is an easy way for a local shop to stay relevant.
They've been in all the local magazines, though a lot of these are as useful as a phone book for finding choice ramen.
