江武里 (Eburi in Asakusa)

麺屋 江武里

I probably never would have come to this spot, out in Asakusa, if it was for it being part of #tokyoextra. What's #tokyoextra you ask? It's a goofy TV show I've been doing with AKB48 members lately. You should check it out, subscribe, and leave comments telling them to renew me for another 50 or so episodes!



Well, the theme this time was curry ramen.

Eburi serves a whole range of bowls. Shoyu, thick gyokai tsukemen, random limited bowls, as well as the curry, which is only served from 1:00pm. It's the yellow line on the ticket machine, should you choose to follow your favorite AKB48 idol on her culinary exploits.

Solid.

The shop's dashi is mixed with a Japanese-style curry soup. Nothing too intense, just light spices and light umami flavors. This one was excellent with an onsen tamago, lightly poached egg, as a topping.

Located very close to the touristy part of town.

I came across your blog when I watched Tokyo Extra on a recent ANA flight. I assume they have stats on how many people watch that show on flights? I binge-watched all the Tokyo Extras on my recent flight, but really only to see the ramen segment. So fun. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the comments. Great to hear that the shows are on ANA flights. I didn't know!

Ugh. I must have strolled past this ramen shack every day when staying at the hostels across the river in [url=https://www.google.com/maps/dir/2+Chome-20-2+Higashikomagata,+Sumida-ku,+T%C5%8Dky%C5%8D-to+130-0005,+Japan/%E9%9B%B7%E9%96%80%E3%82%B9%E3%82%AB%E3%82%A4%E3%83%9E%E3%83%B3%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A7%E3%83%B3/@35.7073607,139.7980695,17z/data=!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x60188ecf11aed7d1:0x9564e711483747e0!2m2!1d139.8002582!2d35.7073607!1m5!1m1!1s0x60188ec7a9fbb9bf:0xd0de17635111a6d8!2m2!1d139.7955253!2d35.709224!3e2?hl=en]Sumida-ku[/url], [i]but never stopped in[/i]. 8=S)
