  1. there was a huge line on Friday for the last hurrah

    1. a shame really, their shoyu ramen special was something magical. Let's hope the taisho resurfaces somewhere w/ the same ramen.

      it will be missed....

        Will be VERY missed. No more eel dish. :( It was one of my few dependable joints in midtown!

          darn, that was some really good ramen.

          Anyone know why they closed? They always seem to be bustling for lunch.

        2. Their ramen was marginal at worst, average at best. And overpriced to boot.

            Yeah, that was always my take on it. I never understood the adulation.

          2. Oh no, I used to love their Mix Eel rice, anyone know of a similar dish elsewhere?
