science, technology, and medicine served up with some tasty noodles

Ganko Ramen of Ikebukuro

If you want to taste some of the best ramen around to the stealthy ramen joint with the black tarp and the bone.  It has amazing broth (we tried to shio), perfect noodles, melt in your mouth chase that he freshly cuts right in front of you before putting it in your bowl, and delicious caramelized shallots on top

But you don’t have to take my word for it, you can read about in the NY Times: http://travel.nytimes.com/travel/guides/asia/japan/tokyo/77728/ganko/restaurant-detail.html

Or in one of the wonderful ramen blogs out there:  http://www.ramenadventures.com/2010/02/ganko-in-ikebukuro.html
