Sumo mural


You'll find this mural at one of my regular hangouts on Yonge Street - Ajisen Ramen. The worn-out pink seating might turn some people off, but I find it kitschy cute. I actually discovered this place a few months back when I saw a picture of ramen soup on someone else's blog. I started to get a craving, so I googled "best ramen in Toronto" and Ajisen came up. I've been going there ever since!


This is the first soup I sampled, vegetarian with a miso-based broth with two squares of fried tofu on top. Now I usually get number 25 which is veggies in a curry broth. Whatever you choose, it's bound to be delicious, I don't think there's anything "bad" on their menu. For more murals, take a look at Mural Monday.

PS: Happy Monday and happy birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to you!!
Looks like a yummy ramen, but I wonder what are on the noodle. What is the square one? Unfamiliar to me. Cosmopolitan food.

Don't know if I'd call that pink "cute", but I've always liked the word "kitsch", so I'll go with that! But I do like the mural.

And enjoy your day!

Miam ! Mais en fait quand on est assis dessous, on n'est pas écrasé par le poids de ces sumotoris ? Bon anni !!!

I would think sumo wrestlers would need a more substantial meal than miso soup.

Randy said...

Not something I would want to look at while eating.

Love this mural. Do you think it's taken from a real woodblock print? Wish I could read Japanese. Maybe the writing refers to menu items! Ha! Thanks for contributing to Monday Mural.

Picturesque and quite photogenic, but not really my thing in so many ways...

Great mural! and boy does that Ramen look delicious! And I agree, the kitschy pink works - very Japanese in that sort of Pop Culture kind of way.

Happy Belated Birthday! Food looks wonderful, I could handle the pink easily and the sumo wrestlers too (well, you know, not literally)....I love to find one-of-a-kind restaurants!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
