ramen from Shinasoba KibiBrian from Ramen Adventures checks in to update on the ongoing Ramen Champion contest in Shinjuku.

Its still going despite the blackouts in Tokyo although it did not seem crowded from his pictures.

Lovely bowls of soup, visually my fav is the Sinasoba ‘version up’ pork ramen.

Interesting way of voting for your champion too, just drop your spoons in the bin corresponding to your choice, 4 spoons is 4 votes. Who will win the ramen championships?

More excellent photos and restaurant reviews from Brian over at Ramen Adventures:

His articles always make me hungry. Check out his review of the Hirugao at Tokyo Ramen Street. Brian and Daniel from How to Japonese have made a video review together of it, but what are those guys making in the percolator things? The broth for ramen? To much background noise for me to hear it in the video. Tokyo Ramen Street is definitely on my list of places to visit in Japan next time we go.
