|Ippudo's trademark jasmine tea|
Ippudo is known for their akamaru red and shiromaru white bowls. The former has a deeper flavor, topped with burned garlic oil and homemade rayu oil, while the latter is the fatty, porky original. This new shop only offers the shiromaru, but at a slightly discounted price so you can trick it out with your choice from a wealth of toppings. Two for a hundred yen!
This is the standard. And no waiting an hour for your bowl while hipsters sip cocktails and take selfies.
|Shiromaru ramen (700yen)|
Shiromaru won't win any awards, unless your liver is giving out Oscars for Best Booze Sponge. This is just a simple, solid, post-drinking bowl, no frills, no fuss.
