贅沢濃厚味噌らぁ麺 - Dense Luxury Miso Ramen
Laziness has prevented me from writing this post in a timely manner, but it hasn't prevented me from subsequent visits to Matador Miso. A spin-off from the lauded Matador, also in Kita Senju, this branch has a completely different menu and offers a seemingly more traditional ramen, but with a modern, matador twist.
Is that roast beef? In keeping with the beefy theme that the other store has, Matador offers some roast beef chashu with this more expensive, topping-laden bowl alongside the more common minced meat that you usually find with miso ramen. I've actually skipped out on the pricier version the other times I've been and gone with the more simple bowl, which is also a great choice. The renkon (lotus root) is a little different and the tomato really matched the soup.
Finishing this one to the last drop wasn't even a question. I'm not a big fan of ramens over ￥1000 as a general rule, but I can't see how they could keep this one under, so they'll get a pass there.
