From Kitchen In Tokyo : Week 9, 2021
Have you ever heard the word “Asa Ra”(朝ラー)？
This means “Easting Ramen from the morning”.
It has been a hot topic just before Corona and was popular with tourists as well, especially Ramen Lovers !
A Japanese famous ramen company Ippudo 一風堂 recently started offering Soy sauce ramen & Special rice porridge at their limited shop in Asakusabashi. So, my family and I visited weekday morning from 8:00!
The price is reasonable at 500 yen, and those who wish can drink coffee for free. *This service is weekday only!
Though Ippudo is famous for Tonkotsu ramen but the soy sauce ramen and their homemade egg noodles were really fresh, chewy and went well with light flavor soy based soup.
And our surprise was that their special rice porridge is made of Tonkotsu soup! Umeboshi, Zha cai, and paprika, which are thought to have been added to change the texture, were also interesting and delicious.
Both dishes warmed my body on a cold morning.
