ましこ亭 (Mashikotei in Tachikawa)

東京ましこ亭

Anytime I come to Tachikawa, I check out what's new at the NY Ramen Square. Less than a couple minutes from the station, this ramen stadium boasts eight shops in an unexplained New York theme. There are some long running standards, like Samurai, as well as the famous "Ramen Tryout" shops.

Gotta try the tryout.

Beef ramen. With sides of different beef dishes. Roast beef plate, stewed beef, Korean style beef. It would have been nice to try a few, but when the ramen comes out to 1200 yen, the budget has already been broken.

What's with the slice of beef placed on my spoon?

This was a weak bowl. Despite being loaded with tasty-looking things, the soup was forgettable. And those tasty-looking things? Not so tasty.

Once again, beef ramen disappoints. Just go to Matador.
