Ramen Hide @ Kyodo

Categorised in: | Link of this article

This time, I would like to introduce one of my favorite ramen shop in Tokyo. The name of this shop is Ramen Hide (らあめん英).
My family and I used to live in Kyodo area, which is a western side of Tokyo and it takes about 20-30 minutes from Shinjuku by train. This is where YUCa’s Japanese Cooking has started. It sounds similar to Kyoto but no. KYODO!

They offer Kyushu-style tonkotsu ramen (pork bone broth ramen). I know most tonkotsu ramen lovers like its very thick broth. I am one of them but I cannot drink all the soup every time…so I always feel guilty. But the broth of this shop is more on the lite side and has well-balanced…so I can drink most of it! I also like their noodles are straight, thin and firm which is perfect for the soup’s consistency.

My family visited and invited our friends to this ramen shop many times (even we cannot count!). One of the reason is that the owner and staffs of this shop are so friendly and easy to chat with. And of course, the flavor of their ramen is excellent! (Oh, if you visit lunch time, they might give you soft-serve ice cream at the end!)
The location is a bit far from center of Tokyo but their ramen is worth tasting it! Please try it out! Read More

Gyoku @ Ramen street in Tokyo station

Categorised in: | Link of this article

When I go to Tokyo station, I try to visit Ramen street and eat Ramen in the basement floor. This time, I chose the GYOKU.

I ordered their featured menu, Tokusei-Torori-soba (1,080JPY). This is niboshi flavor ramen and  niboshi means dried sardine in Japanese.
After simmering niboshi for long time and filtering umami flavor, they add chicken paitan soup to thicken the flavor. What is more, they also add fresh bonito flakes which is shred in the shop as for a topping. Their thinly shred bonito flakes makes fresh aroma and as well as amazing flavor. Highly recommend!
