Miso plus creamy tori paitan. A recipe for success?
The folks at the Setagaya ramen conglomerate think so. There are quite a few shops and quite a few styles under the Setagaya banner, and this is the newest.
The soup and noodles; decent. A little forgettable, but that just might be me.
The memory here is with the toppings. Chicken offal. Yep, chicken guts, hearts, cartilage, and skin, oh my.
This is Japan . . . this sort of thing isn't rare. But as a ramen topping, this is a first. And a last for me.
These kinds of eats have their place; at your local yakitori spot. Roaster skewers of everything-inside-a-bird. Places where my friends can order the chicken intestine, and I can stick with some run-of-the-mill breast.
