香福 (Kofuku in Kitakata, Fukushima)

香福

Another new shop in Kitakata, Kofuku's most popular bowl features the Bannai look; noodles hidden by a layer of tender chashu.

Great pork! Everything else in this bowl, though, fell flat for me. Maybe it was because this was bowl number five or six, a number far beyond my threshold for enjoyment.

But Abram was in TV mode, so the slurping had to continue.

Beautiful bowl.

And a very local-feeling shop.

And for some reason, The Usual Suspects and Reservoir Dogs being displayed like art on the wall.

If you have time after your bowl, head across the street to Kitakata's own ramen shrine.

Where you can pray for a lifetime of delicious bowls.
