Ramenote: Kikanbo

by Brian MacDuckston
Metropolis Magazine

Spicy ramen is easy to find in Tokyo; most shops have a 辛 (karai) or 赤 (red) version on the menu. Kikanbo has nothing but. In fact, its ramen comes topped with two different spice blends. The kara spice is the shop’s own blend of 11 secret spices from around the world, and the shibi is ground Chinese numbing pepper. Choose your level, from light to oni-meshi (devil-like). The pick is kara-shibi miso ramen (カラシビ味噌らー麺, ¥780), matching the Japanese demon-mask décor.
