The Nagi we all know and love has expanded with voracity over the past few years.
One of their latest shops is just outside massive Omiya Station, up in Saitama. Omiya is a major transit point, and business is booming.
In case you can't decipher all that Japanese on the storefront, I'll explain. This shop is using an automated iPad ordering system, and delivering your ramen via an air cushion.
I think my explanation makes perfect sense, but I'll break it down.
Get a QR code when you order.
Snap a shot.
Take some selphies.
Wait for the air-cushion-ramen-retrieval system to activate.
And here it is!
Kind of silly, kind of pointless. There were enough staff on hand to make this system unnecessary, but where is the fun in that?
The ramen is typical Nagi. You can get the niboshi or the tonkotsu. Both are fine, though I'm sure I'll never come back here. Everyone should go to their Golden Gai location.
