Join us as we return to the northwest suburbs, home to Chicagoland's largest Japanese expat community, in a continuing quest to find the region's best ramen noodle soup. Ramen Misoya, the area's only freestanding, dedicated ramen shop, part of a global Japanese chain, recently opened in Mount Prospect in the former Torishin space, and has been garnering rave reviews. Before dining there, we'll make a stop at Tensuke Japanese supermarket in nearby Elk Grove Village to stock up on groceries and sample their sushi. After dinner, we'll ride a few more miles to catch Metra back to the city from the Mount Prospect station.
Here's a rough draft of the route - I'll tweak it to make it a little more bike-friendly: http://goo.gl/maps/rRWZb
