What a fun, feel good ride Okashi no Ie has been. To me, Okashi no Ie is about people who live in the fringes of society and how they try to survive. What this show is trying to say without saying it out loud is that while these people struggle and do not have the things that everyone in society wants, maybe they have something else that not everyone in society has. I am glad Okashi no Ie never descended into schmaltzy melodrama.Very watchable, feel good show.
Edit: Forgot to mention the ending to episode 9. That was such a painful ending but their reactions sum up what the series is about.

This post is for the new ramen places that I tried this trip so the old reliables like Fuunji are not included. Tontoro is absolutely worth the 45 minute trip down from Kumamoto. Absolutely nothing to complain about.
I've already written a post just for Butayarou. My stomach is rumbling right now. So many tonkotsu ramen shops in Melbourne and they are all shit.
3. Mankai (Temmabashi)
4. ITTOU (Shin Koiwa)
Ittou is fish soup tsukemen, a flavour that Yoshi's Mensousai Mugen is going for but doesn't come close.
5. SEIRYUU (Shin Koiwa)
Not bad. If only they opened for dinner.
I found one stupid Japanese post naming this one of the top 10 tonkotsu shops in Tokyo. Unfortunately, it tastes very generic. Nothing stood out for me at all.
7. ROKUGETSU Asakusabashi
Soup is decent, chaashiu is fucking awesome but the men is so bad. Really instant noodle quality. Sigh.
