E-chan Shokudo in Meguro-ku, Tokyo

A popular ramen shop in Meguro Ward, opened on April 24, 2023, run by a former comedian.

2024.1.2tue
First visit for morning ra.

Meal ticket system, 6 counter seats

Charshu men ¥1,400

First business day of Reiwa 6◎
On this day, we will be open until January 4th with a limited menu that uses a soup called "Yancha" that changes daily★

Arrived at 7:40am and entered the store at 8:30am.

When I got to my seat, the rice bowl was served early, and the aroma was quite oily and hit my nose.

The soup has a complex flavor with a strong seafood-based stock, and the Kaeshi has a strong flavor with an impact.You can also feel the salty taste.

We use medium-thick noodles, which have a nice texture and flavor and go well with the soup.

Filled with lots of slightly salty and juicy chashu pork, it's filling and filling★ (I can see why they recommend raw eggs)
Easy to eat, flavorful menma, spinach and refreshing green onions are great accents◎

Since there is a lot of oil, the soup stays hot for a long time, which is good.
I added pepper and vinegar as a finishing touch, and it was delicious today as well, thank you for the meal 😋

It's a unique shop that has been talked about on TV and videos, and has a great atmosphere and well-crafted drinks.

About 650m from Fudomae Station
There is coin parking nearby.

About 10 minutes walk from Fudo-mae Station on the Tokyu Meguro Line. About 10 minutes walk from the west exit or front exit of JR, Tokyo Metro, Toei, or Tokyu Meguro Station. From Meguro Station, go up Gyojinzaka (the slope that goes down when you see Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation on your right), cross the Meguro River, exit Yamate-dori, and there is a pedestrian bridge, so cross it and you'll be right there. It's at the foot of the pedestrian bridge. *For those who are familiar with the area, it may be easier to understand by calling it the former site of Tori Sobakibi Meguro.

This is a restaurant with only 6 seats at the counter. If there is a line, wait without buying a ticket. Only 10 people can enter the store, and those after the 11th will wait along the pedestrian bridge. The rule seems to be that if a seat becomes available, you buy a ticket and sit down. The ticket vending machine can only accept 1000 bills.

Arrived at 6:44 at the end of 2023. It was already open. I was 9th out of 8 people waiting outside. As a result, I entered the restaurant at 7:11 and the bowl arrived at 7:17. Therefore, the estimated waiting time will be around 3 minutes and 45 seconds. For your reference. (Also, at 7:00, there were 18 people waiting. There will be more when they come out...)

This day was genuine soup day, so I ordered ``Charshu Men'' for 1,400 yen. The pork soup is piping hot, with a light layer of fat covering the surface. The soup has a strong soy sauce (it might be a little salty for some people), and at first you can taste the various flavors of the fish, but gradually the flavor of the animal-based stock starts to kick in. Anyway, the flavor is amazing. Moreover, it is a wonderful soup with no unpleasant taste. The noodles are medium-thick, slightly curly noodles with a lot of water added, and go perfectly with the soup. The topping is char siu men, so char siu is also good! That being said, it consisted of menma, green onions, spinach, and one piece of seaweed.

Although the owner is a one-man shop, there is no waste in his movements, and his greetings are perfect. It's a wonderful shop. Anyway, this soup is amazing. It's a classic ramen that isn't anything fancy, but I can't think of any other soup that tastes as good as this one. I sincerely thought that I could be satisfied with this ``kake ramen'' for 800 yen. I think it's very difficult to get there because it's early in the morning and the lines are long, but I think it's a restaurant you should definitely visit at least once. I would also like to receive a limited edition!

Arrived at 6:55 on the last business day of the year.
I thought it would open at 7am, but it was already open.
And there was a line of 15 people!
I'm amazed at all the ramen lovers who come early in the morning and on a cold day to eat.
There were 10 people in front of the store, and more lined up along the side of the pedestrian bridge.

Entered the store at 7:38.
Buy a meal ticket from the ticket vending machine on the right side of the entrance.
There are various types of ramen, char siu noodles, menma ramen, and tsukemen, but since we lined up early in the morning, this time we ordered 1,400 yen of char siu noodles and 150 yen of rice.

By the time I sat down, placed my ticket on the counter, and got my water, the food had already arrived.
What a sleight of hand.
The way he works so efficiently even in one surgery is a work of art.
The rice is topped with chopped pork.

Arrival of rice bowl at 7:43.
The char siew that is lined up in a row is a masterpiece.
There are easily over 10 pieces in there.
Other ingredients include green onions, menma, seaweed, and spinach.
This combination is also difficult.

Start with soup to warm your frozen body.
It has a slight aroma of dried sardines and a rich flavor of animal-based soup stock.
Furthermore, the flavor interwoven with the soy sauce and the fat on the surface is top class.
My hands naturally reach for the soup.

I wanted to go for the noodles next, but my heart was drawn to the chashu in front of me.
The melt-in-your-mouth chashu is exquisite.
If you have room in your stomach, please order the chashu men.
That's about it.
I'm glad I ordered dinner too.

Now, let's move on to the noodles.
The thick, homemade noodles are smooth and carry the soup well.
Not only the soup, but the noodles are also great.
The spinach and green onions help to remove the fat from the chashu, so the soup and noodles go by smoothly.
The menma is flavored with sesame oil, which is also your favorite seasoning.
Best of all.

I finished my meal and drank all the soup.
I never thought I would be able to find ramen that I like so much.
It was so good that I wanted to eat it even though I had to line up in the morning.
Next, let's try it sukiyaki-style with menma ramen, green onions, and raw eggs.
It was a feast.
