Ichiran Ramen Japan
Ichiran Vending Machine
Also, the one in Harajuku, I didn't wait as long as I waited in Shibuya. Which is always nice!
You can see the first time I tried Ichiran in this post. Totally different vibe but still not as good as I expected.
I retried Ichiran because I don't want to not like it. As much as I don't like mainstream anything, I can't just let this go. But then again it didn't turn out exactly like I want to so I retried again. Persistence is key.
This is already the best combination I could imagine. Steamed Pork with Nori, Special Vinegar, and Ramen. I also changed my list a little by ordering them to put a stronger tasting broth but it didn't make a significant difference.
I remember hearing two Japanese guys sitting beside me talking how they missed and really like it but no! Not me. But you know! Still! I might give this another try someday but now, it's just not my cup of tea. Ciao!
