while having a day to walk around Matsumoto, I decided to get some ramen as it was cold and raining and.. well do i really need an excuse for ramen?
there were two shops next to each other and after asking one of the locals about which shop to go to, he pointed me to Mutsumiya's. Of course he didn't speak any english so i don't really know if he knew what i was asking or if he just wanted to point me away from him.
Mutsumiya (i later found out) is a chain of ramen shops specializing in Hokkaido style. I decided to go with the kita no megumi (meaning northern blessing) type of ramen.
I was not disappointed. it had a creamy slight taste to it and the corn added a little fun and flair to it.
as usual, another delicious ramen... i really think that I have to start learning proper ways to make ramen as I'll be in withdrawal when/if i come back to the states...
