Sugoi Niboshi Ramen Nagi

On another December trip to Tokyo, it was only right that at some point I had a drunken bowl of ramen. I was drinking in the Golden Gai, which meant that bowl was Nagi, one I've had before and hope to have again, but have never blogged about. Without the dexterity required to take notes, I entered and ordered the sardine ramen.


The Bowl
For a bowl in the middle of a bar district, Nagi does not deserve to be as good as it is. It does not hold back on the sardine, but it keeps everything else in check: the salt, the oil, the fat. The fat, curly noodles, too, are perfect even though the soup isn't as thick as you'd normally expect to match. Piles of negi and nice spice finish off the bowl that's just as good sober as it is drunk.


Would I Go Again?


Should You Go?
