もちもちの木 Mochi Mochi No Ki Ramen
Before we left for Japan, our friend Rickmond aka Rameniac sent us an email with some of his favorite ramen spots in Tokyo. First on his list - Mochi Mochi No Ki. Rickmond described it as, "State of the art bonito-y fishy shoyu ramen sealed under a layer of oil. F*ckin' dope." Who can say no to bonito-laced ramen steaming under a layer of oil.
My favorite part of eating ramen is watching them turn over my ramen noodles. Such precision.
Mochi Mochi No Ki starts off with a vegetable, chicken and pork bone stock. Then they add bonito, mackerel, anchovies and kombu dashi to give their ramen broth that perfect amount of fishyness. Finally green onion oil and lard are added to seal in the beautiful ramen steam.
This bowl of ramen is a whole lot of wonderful.
Just say no.
