Big news from Keizo and the Basanova crew.
They are coming to New York!
I will post the details over on the facebook site when they are nailed down, but it is looking like sometime around the summer, somewhere in central Manhattan.
Are you ready?
In other Basanova news, keep an eye out for a future episode of Vice: Munchies, featuring the Basanova ramen burger. Two fried noodle patties, a thick piece of chashu, and all the trimmings. Hella tasty!
On a bittersweet note, I am very happy for Keizo, but it is tough to have one of my best ramen friends heading out of Tokyo. In a recent interview on Japan Eats, though, it seems like he'll be back in Tokyo before long.
Keizo, this next bowl is for you!
Do they have anything remotely close to ET in NY?
Don't worry, Basanova in Tokyo is business as usual.
