味かね (Ajikane in Shimokitazawa)



A new shop across the street from my local go-to espresso shop has ramen on the menu. Must check this out!


Whoah, this is just the noodle page. The entire menu is 113 items deep. Yes, we counted.

Curry, lunch plates, ethnic food, it is all here. This is usually a bad sign for ramen.


The temporary specials page had something new. American reimen. Hunh? The explanation was not so appetizing; a mayo-soy sauce over cold noodles, topped with roast beef and a fried egg.

Luckily they were sold out.


The tantanmen? Too bad they weren't sold out of that, too. It was pretty poor.

This is what happens when you are drinking coffee and decide on ramen without a plan; you go to the first place you can find.

In Ajikane's defense, the rest of their menu looks quite nice. My friend got a lunch plate with fried aji and an omelet, much to his enjoyment.
