らーめん 人間ばんざい (Ningen Banzi in Nakano)

らーめん 人間ばんざい

Cycling around Tokyo, I ran into this shop with a very long name.

究極のにぼし味噌らーめん 人間ばんざい, Kyukokunoniboshimisoramen Ningenbanzi.

Extreme dried sardine miso ramen human banzai. Or something along those lines.

Thick niboshi is most often flavored with heavy soy sauce blends, but Ningen Banzai uses miso. 

Kind of like a reinvention of Hokkaido.

When he was 18 years old, the master decided to pursue ramen. He spent about 10 years of trial and error to come up with this recipe. The end result is a blend of red and white miso with flavorful niboshi. Miso nerds should give it a try!
