Ejo #63 – Drunk In….. Tokyo (Nagi Golden Gai)

DRUNK IN….. TOKYO
NAGI GOLDEN GAI

So, more ramen. But different ramen. The Golden Gai branch of Nagi Ramen is a second-storey, ten-seat restaurant about the size of your bathroom. But before you even get upstairs to eat your amazing ramen you have to wait in line (between 15-45 minutes) in a narrow, dirty alley with all the other people keen to get their taste of the unique broth made with baby sardines and pork bones and cooked for hours and hours and hours (so a 45 minute wait is peanuts in comparison). TOTALLY. WORTH. IT. Luckily for you Nagi Golden Gai is open 24 hours.

All good things take time.

Right behind David are the stairs.  This place is miniscule - and always full.

Thank you little baby sardines for sacrificing your lives so that we can eat this sensational bowl of ramen.
