ミツ星 (Mitsuboshi in Ebisu)



Mazesoba has no rules. You can top a bowl of soupless ramen noodles with anything, and no one can fault you. We've seen this taken to the extreme with junk-style ramen, so I'm rarely surprised by anything new.


Never say never. The sheer vastness of options at Mitsuboshi was a shock.


Choose from the list or make your own. Number one looks pretty good, a carbonara version with bacon, cheese, and egg, but we were here for something else.


The shop's original wagyu beef sauce, with all the trimmings.


And by trimmings, I mean fish powder, spicy crisped rice, peanuts, banana chips, seaweed powder, fried onions, and chopped green onions. Yes, I said banana chips.

You mix it up, vigorously, to not only spread those flavors, but to activate the gluten in the noodles. The sloppy mess is pure junk food, and totally tasty.


I'll let you discover the rest of the toppings on your own.


Go ahead and add some cheese and butter if you are up for it.


By the way, this was for another edition of #tokyoextra. Check it out!
