My personal Holy Grail
(and I don't mean that instant crap
), made all the more tantalizing
by the fact that I can never remember the name of it (we just called it The Good Ramen-Ya
), or where it is exactly. It's in Machida
somewhere, I think down the street from the Odakyu station, but the other
way, not toward Tokyu Hands. Kind of near that one restaurant with the fugu
sign out front.
The guy who runs it is this total Zen Ramen Master
type, with several lovely daughters who assist him. They have the best cha-shu pork you've ever had, I promise, and gyoza
with shiso leaves inside.
