Good ramen place and could try my first cold ramen. Shop owners were nice and food was good. I'll get back again to get another type of ramen but this is definitely a good place.


You can easily see it from the intersection in front of Shinbashi Welfare Center on Shinbashi Red Brick Street ☺️

A shop with a casual atmosphere 😮‍💨

I entered the store at a different time around lunchtime, but
The customers keep coming lol❣️

Anyway, today is special dark soy sauce💖

The chashu 🍖 is cut by machine one by one.

How happy I am☺️

Boiled eggs with a chopstick rest, the yolk is moderately hard and half-boiled 😋

Tasty Shinachiku ⭕️

Soft and perfect for resting your chopsticks❣️

Mr. Mottainai 🍥 has a solid impact and the kamaboko feeling is firmly on the board! 😮‍💨

🍜You can choose two types of noodles: Fumen and Thin noodles.

This time,

As expected, choose thin noodles 😋

Enjoy the taste while watching the mysterious cooking in the kitchen 👅
I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Kaeshi is dark soy sauce

Salty taste gives the body.

The noodles 🍜 are so thin that I'm sorry.

Texture and eating response 🤣⭕️

With a kind mother
A shopkeeper who is particular about
Small but amazing
It was a delicious and homey restaurant♪♪

Next is salt 🧂 & Japanese style soup

I should go and see it 😋

Thank you very much♪
I'll come back later.


It's really delicious. It's amazing that the soup has so much depth in a neutral style. Are there two types of chashu? Each one had a different taste. I had a choice of thick noodles or thin noodles, but they recommended thin noodles, so I went with thin noodles.
It's not flashy, but I got the impression that it was made with great sincerity. It's a little far from the station, but it's worth the trip. Highly recommended. I want to eat it again.
