It is that time of year again. The 2014 Tokyo Ramen Show. There are so many choices, but I only had time for three.

Rairaiken recreated a recipe from 100 years ago. Neat! It turned out to be a great bowl. The flavors were solid, with nothing crazy, and nothing intense.

Of course, you should pick the longest line, right?

The Fukushima toripaitan sold over 8000 bowls at a regional ramen fest, and was finally making the trek down to Tokyo.

The Tokyo Ramen Show is all about collaboration bowls.

This one between Matador and Kuroki brought two of my favorite shops together, though the result was 95% Matador.

I was a bit rushed when I went, so didn't have a chance to get too deep into the mix this year. Did anyone go there? I'd love to hear your impressions.
