Japan 2018: The Ramen Edition

Rather than doing dedicated food review entries for a few of the ramen places that I have set out to try for this trip, I decided to combine them instead into 1 entry.

Food Mission 2017: Menya Sakura

Yet another entry intended for February that got 'carried forward' into March 😛 Another food outlet that I managed to tick off in year 2017 itself - Menya Sakura.

Food Mission: Rokurinsha @ Tokyo Station

A separate review to round off my travel entries for the year! Decided to log this in as a separate entry rather than part of my Day 1 entry as it was so good + also one of the restaurants that I have specifically set out to try (which is why I'm categorizing it under … Continue reading Food Mission: Rokurinsha @ Tokyo Station
