Nothing quite like a delicious bowl of ramen for 100yen off of the streets of Tokyo. I need to go back there someday.

rockmeisha for real kyushu style tonkotsu - near west 4th and 6th, barrow street?

santoka for hokkaido style shio tonkotsu - take the port authority shuttle from penn to mitsuwa

Alot people recommend Chikubu for tokyo shoyu ramen, but I never had shoyu ramen in tokyo to compare.

all other places are crap. momofuku makes me puke.

I went to the kyushu fair at mitsuwa on the very last day and I bought like 2 dozen packages of fresh tonkotsu ramen from alot of famous ramen stands for 1 a buck each marked down from 8 bucks each, shelf life of 2 weeks left. My arteries are clogged.
