A shop where you can feel like you are in Hakata while you are in Shimbashi


I visited the store today for the first time in a while for lunch.
This is an authentic store where you can smell the smell of pork bones just by walking in front of the store.

Since the owner is the only one handling the food, if the timing is bad, you may have to wait until it's served, but since Nagahama Ramen's noodles are thin, the wait isn't long enough to make you feel numb.

At lunchtime, you can get one rice ball free of charge if you request it, which is a great deal.

Also, the most important thing is the taste.
Just passing by the store, you can smell the unique smell of pork bones, but the soup is a good representation of the characteristics of Nagahama ramen, and there is no smell or taste at all. Rather, it has a creamy and elegant taste. It's not a simple dish, but an authentic Nagahama ramen.

The special ramen I ordered this time has all the toppings, but in this day and age it costs 980 yen. (Even if the price has increased recently, it's still the same price.) The only disappointing point is that there is no seaweed... Well, seaweed is expensive these days, and it's difficult to preserve, so maybe it can't be helped? but…

In any case. I think this is a famous Nagahama ramen restaurant in terms of taste and cost performance.
