Recommending ramen part 2

Recommending ramen!

1. I think the  soup is more important than the noodles. The spicier the better
2. Soranoiro on “Ramen Street” in Tokyo Station has the best vegetarian ramen in Tokyo. The yuzu and chili soup is so nice.






  1. I think the soup is more important than the noodles. Overall though it depends on the chashu
  2. One of my favorite places is 福氣拉麵 near Daimon stn- google translate says Fortune Ramen.





1.I think soup is more important than noodles.

Pumpkin Pie!

In the U.S., in November, we celebrate Thanksgiving. Everyone has a big party with their family, and they eat so much food.

A traditional Thanksgiving dessert is pumpkin pie. We add ground ginger, cinnamon, and cloves to give the pie it’s special flavor.
I really love pumpkin pie, but, when I came to Japan, I couldn’t buy it anywhere. So, the other day, I made it myself. It took a long time to make, but it was so delicious.
If you want the recipe, please let me know!
