A Spicy Ramen Shop in Yokohama

Some kind of spicy ramen

Needing some quick nourishment before getting on the train, we stopped at this tiny ramen shop in Suehiro-cho (one of the small streets off Isezaki Mall in Yokohama). It was one of those typically small and narrow counter-only shops but it was packed with salarymen so we figured that it had to be good.

Some guy sitting next to us had a bright red bowl that looked pretty good, so we grabbed one one of those, together with a tsukemen variant of it, both of which turned out respectably salty and spicy. It was only in retrospect that I realized that these guys offered varying degrees of spiciness, if I interpreted the Japanese sign correctly. I'm now very curious as to how aggressively they could turn up the heat on these.
