Men-jin (麺神) - "Noodle Deity"

So I found this ramen restaurant named Men-jin (麺神) -- "Noodle Deity", located in Shiga prefecture.

Their specialties includes this "Yuzu Shio Ramen" which features Yuzu citron.  Yuzu peel is a common condiment for soba and udon, but Yuzu ramen sounds...interesting.  It could be worth trying if you're in Kansai.

Since Japanese Shintoism is a complex syncretism that claims "eight million" deities, I suspect a number of them should be related to the Flying Spaghetti Monster... or at least to noodles in general.  I'm still searching...
