Butter Me Up


They say when a Japanese person comes back from a trip overseas, ramen is the first thing they want to eat!

I'm not sure how accurate that is but I love ramen, too. This is the Miso Butter Ramen at one of my favorite ramen shops, Cho-chin Tei (ちょうちん亭). It takes a while to get through the Moyashi (beansprout) they pile on the ramen but it goes well with the miso taste. The butter also makes the soup a bit more creamy. Yum!


The owner of the shop always greets you with a big smile and a loud "Irasshai-ma-se!!!," which means "Welcome" or "Please come inside." I've been coming here since high school and I love that no matter how long it's been since the last visit, the staff always remember you and ask after you.

I also love that the girls get a small popsicle after finishing the ramen!

The first thing I like to eat back home from a trip abroad, are some slices of Tuscan salami.
I'm not a girl, but would like the popsicle anyway.

You've been going there since high school? You only finished high school last week, didn't you?
;-D

I love ramen and all sorts of noodles. A nice touch with the popsicle. Poor guys.

I really like ramen too... but no one ever gave me a popsicle in Japan! :-D (I totally get VPs salami, too... yum!)

It is nice to watch the butter slowly melt, gradually kicking up a notch the flavor’s “tanginess” quotient. Does this shop have any jars around of crushed garlic paste for its customers?

Hmm, garlic and popsicles. Maybe not the best match. But wait! Is that a garlic popsicle you are showing us? Ha ha.
