kozou plus

Untitled It's Golden Week here in Japan.

There are several holidays lined up at the end of the week.

There was also one this past Saturday...I think Japan may be the only country to count Saturdays to observe holidays.

Keep in mind there are businesses that do work on Saturdays, so I guess a holiday is a holiday...

Anyway, we recently tried Kozou Plus.

They specialize in mazesoba where you maze (mah-zay...mix) everything up before eating.

I ordered their niku niku don (literally meat meat bowl)...filled with grilled char siu and a sweet-salty sauce.

The meat was super tender...and that egg!

(wasn't too sure when to use the grainy mustard though...)

Untitled Satoshi chose their mazesoba.

He usually chooses noodles with soup, but since this shop specializes in mazesoba, he tried and liked this.

We liked the laid back feel of this shop (at some of these type of shops, you just feel rushed to finish your food and go!)...we'll be back!

I saw these dishes on your flickr account and wondered, is she using a different camera? They really pop!

Looks and sounds so delicious! I wonder if Japan got this from Korea's bibim kook soo or the other way around!

Thanks Rowena, I am only using my iPhone, so maybe it is a filter from Instagram that makes it look different?!hmm...

Thanks V, not exactly sure how tsukemen started...

Take care you two!

Others say egg porn is passé Kirk, but I don't think I'll tire of it :)

Take care!

V, an interesting read on the timeline of Ramen, which talks a little about tsukemen too.
