I always try to keep a keen eye open for new shops. In April, I noticed a new shop would be popping up right in the already populated area of Tenroku. It was a creation of Ashita, the creator of late shop Nunpoko and collaborator on Strike-ken. Seishundo provided only miso ramen, serving from 10PM and on. I arrived at night, grabbed a chuhai, and ordered the very last bowl they had.


The Bowl
This was a wild miso. It was a big bowl and rich with flavors and oil. The chef guaranteed us that it was unmodified, but whatever was in there it tasted deep of ra-yu spicy oil and had a strong star anise aroma that reminded me of Taiwanese food. The noodles were super long, and the pork was a little chewy but quite good. There was some mackerel thrown in for good measure; that was something I really had never seen before.


Would I Go Again?


Should You Go?
