The other day a fairly typical debate broke out at work. The never ending quest to find good ramen means that we frequently have arguments over where the best ramen in Yokosuka is located. There was a time when I could answer that question with no hesitation, but since my horizons have broadened some of my old favorites have lessened in my sight. Interested to see what my co-workers thought, I asked them, and a couple elected Tajima as the best in town. Always hopeful, I decided to give it a go today, since I had never eaten there before.
It's a bit of a walk from base, but I had my bike with me today, so it was easily within distance. The weather has just started getting really nice here, the delicious time between the end of winter and the beginning of summer that is a blend of spring/summer without the humidity yet. Today was a bit warm for my taste, but not so bad that I was a mess when I got back to work. If driving, I'm not sure that there are any convenient parking spaces nearby. But if you feel bold, you can always park just outside on the street. If you eat fast enough, you might be just under the legal time limit (and most people give cars parked outside of ramen shops a little leeway). Personally, I've never had the guts to try it...and fast as I tend to eat, I still like to actually taste my food.
So yeah, better than ok! I am looking forward to trying some of the other choices on the menu next time.
