Ramen Hide @ Kyodo
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!
We also ordered their special ramen which has a mountain of shredded Japanese spring onion on top!
You can take out their ramen. Their ramen kit includes soup, noodle, spicy vegetables and pickled red ginger. (700JPY)
Don’t forget to order their Gyoza! (500JPY) It’s fatty, crispy and juicy inside. YUM!
