海老だしの哲 (Ebidashi Tetsu in Setagaya)

海老だしの哲

I get overly excited about stamp rallies.  What better way to justify an unending appetite for noodles than with a convenient excuse.

I don't need to eat all this ramen, but if I eat eight bowls, I can win some chopsticks!

And I got overly excited for another reason.  This shop, promising a shrimp based soup, is produced by TETSU, one of the best tsukemen places in Tokyo.  I like shrimp, and I like TETSU.

But despite my finishing the dregs of this bowl, my previous overreaction was severely balanced by the under-performance of this bowl.  Nothing stood out, and I would say the only memorable thing about this shop was it's location on a bustling shopping street in the often overlooked southern edges of Tokyo.
