The award for ramen of the week goes to Match-Bo, which brings Wakayama-Prefecture flava mixed in with a healthy dose of Shibuya style (the store has a digital video projector, an ultra slick interior, and the staff are tres cool), straight to Ikejiriohashi, which is just a stone's throw away from my studio.
Here's a link directly to their drool-inducing Flash menu.
Mr. Kumada, the twenty-something year old head of the store, spells out his philosophy, for example why they don't play the kaidama game.
As an added bonus to all the taste and decor, they are open until the wee hours. When the ramen bug hits, that's the time to scratch it. See you there next time.
