四麺燈 (Shimendo in Ogikubo)



The first thing I noticed was the smell. There are two kinds of ramen-shop smells that I don't mind. Of course, an odorless shop is fine by me. The other is one that stinks from a mile away. At least you know what you are getting into.


Maybe it was the ramen sandals on the wall, but this place stunk after I sat down. Funky.


After a bite of all that garlic, you won't be smelling much anymore. By the way, the above is a half size order of ramen. Yeah, this is ramen for dudes who like this exact kind of ramen.


I am not one of those types of guys, so this one wasn't for me.


I always expect a backlash when I speak out against these pork and garlic shops, but no one seems to mind.
