Another episode of Ramen Do, a show I'm doing with Tokyo Broadcasting. But this time, I completely forgot to take a good photo of my bowl. The above is stolen from the video. Check it out!

Taipoku specializes in beef ramen, sourcing some high quality, A5 grade cuts from Yamagata, a prefecture a ways north of Tokyo.


As Yamagata is the master's home prefecture, much of the menu hails from there.


The Yamagata rice was particularly nice. Watch the video to see what I mean.


Adding some beni shoga, red pickled ginger, makes the taste great, but the photo look pretty sloppy.


Make sure you get a side of チャー牛, chagyu, to really get the most out of this shop.
