Ramen Round-up by Swinnerton of the JT

I think this is the first time I can recall Robbie Swinnerton, Japan Times food file guy, talking about ramen and ramen only. He had a round-up last week- http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bi....

Tokyo tourists should take note, as several places are not far from Roppongi Hills. I've visited Kaotan Ramen, the first one on the list, many times. A little surprised he reviewed it because it's so well known, but it's good. If you are traveling to Tokyo and enjoy clubbing or are in the general area, this is a great place to check out. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's even more ramshackle inside!.....I'm intrigued by the place called Hashigo, a chain I've heard about. I'm less impressed by the story about yatai or street stall places. They're cheap and the "master" always has a lot of pride, but I'm of the opinion that the craft has passed most of these guys by. But that's just my opinion.
