It’s been awhile since I actually had the chance to get on the train and make the trek to a ramen-ya that wasn’t within biking distance. Since I had last night off and had finished most of today’s prep yesterday, I was up early to meet Brian in Naka-Meguro. When I got there, I had no idea the Sakura were in full-bloom. It was a beautiful sight!
Anyhow, the reason we were here was to check out the recently-hyped tomato ramen from Buono Buono. They occupy the space of another restaurant during the day and the ramen is only served for lunch. If you go looking for this place at night, you’ll never find it. Trust me, we’ve done it before.
All this Sakura-watching was starting to get me hungry again. So that’s when I turned to Brian and said let’s go for another bowl. He agreed and after a quick consultation with the ramen database, we were fittingly located in front of Chuuka Soba Sakura-zaka (Sakura Hill) in Shibuya.
