We decided to go to Fujishiro, a new shop that's become famous in the last year for a rich tori paitan ramen.
Fujishiro's tori paitan is made from daisen birds, a popular type of fowl raised in the Totorri region. Lots of vegetables are thrown into that pot and everything is mixed up and simmered for over 8 hours. It doesn't taste as cloying as it looks.

The shop supplies a side of chopped ginger with lemon juice. HIGHLY recommended. We actually finished over half of the jar ourselves. Just an amazing topping that gives the heavy bowl a fresh accent.
To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of tori paitan because its so thick and it usually smells like rotten chicken corpse, but thanks to this topping, I enjoyed this bowl til the very end.
Smooth noodles, delicious chicken chashu, high quality soup, novel toppings. Fujishiro lives up to its new reputation.
