Ramen is one of my favourite foods that I never realised I loved.. ? Honestly, I don't know how it slipped through my focus all these years. It's not that I didn't know what ramen was, in fact I'd tried it a handful of times. Just, it never captivated me.? That was until the first time I tried it in Japan. ? ? It was New Years day and we slipped into a relatively quiet spot in Akasaka (as it turns out is a monumentally busy place to find your self on New Years day thanks to the Sens?-ji temple, and finding a place to even sit and eat lunch is a challenge) ? ? That ramen changed my life. This (pictured) isn't that ramen, this is one from a place down in Christchurch NZ @ramen_ria who also make a pretty good bowl!? However, that first bowl in Tokyo hooked me.. and I've been a rampant ramen fan ever since, chasing down bowls through everywhere I've been. ? ? Nothing here in NZ is as good as in Japan, of course, but I am happy there is at least an Ippudo ( a pretty good Japanese ramen small chain restaurant) here in Auckland where I can enjoy delicious ramen whenever I want ?
