TOKYO 豚骨 BASE MADE by 博多一風堂 池袋店

Tokyo Tonkatsu Base Ramen
[Throwback December] We arrived late on Christmas eve in to Tokyo and while Sushi san had to client meeting on Christmas day (Christmas Day is not a holiday in Japan), I was busy with my beauty appointments (yes, I would get my hair and nails cared for when I go back to Tokyo) and meeting of my friends. In a rush of time, I only had 20 minutes to spare before my next appointment. I chanced upon this ramen shop near the east exit at Ikebukuro Station. It is a sister ramen shop under the Ippundo Chain with pork bone soup base, which sounded awesome since it was freaking cold and I do miss REAL Japanese ramen.

Ramen choices seems pretty similiar to what is offered in Ippundo.

The recommended ramens from their signboard. From left: spicy miso, shoyu (soy base) and original pork soup based.

Like Ippundo, the condiments are the spicy side dish, ginger sliced and garlic.

I got the basic pork soup based ramen. Maybe it had been a long time, or maybe it was cold. Sipping the thick broth was so heavenly. I would come back again if I am ever in a rush and need some hot food 🙂
