€Data
There is a ramen
shop in Japan called
Jiro (not to be
confused with the
famous sushi shop of
a similar name).
Jiro features thick,
wheaty noodles in a
mega-porky soup. Add
to that copious
amounts of garlic,
top with a mountain
of bean sprouts,
drizzle the whole
thing with pork back
fat, and you have
the base of a bowl
of Jiro ramen. There
are other factors,
but essentially this
is a bowl that is
tough to finish, and
you'll smell like it
for the next twelve
hours.

Jiro has spawned
many Jiro-style
shops. One of the
best is Senrigan.
The soup is intense,
but drinkable. The
chashu is thick-cut,
but tender. The
toppings are plenti-
ful, with raw gar-
lic, back fat, spicy
crisped rice, and
the standard bean
sprout pile all
coming into play.
Don't go for any-
thing more than the
normal ramen (Y730)
here. Larger sizes
of noodles or bowls
with more pork are
on the menu, but
should only be at-
tempted by a sea-
soned Jiro fan.

It should be noted
that at any Jiro-
style shop, you will
be asked "Ninniku
hairimasu ka?" Basi-
cally, "You want
garlic in that?"
This is code for you
to tell them how
much of each topping
you want. Many shops
will get upset if
you don't have an
answer, so just
remember to say
"futsu." This will
get you regular
amounts of all the
toppings, the best
choice for a first
timer.
