Ramen Mizuki Reviews

Ramen Mizuki Google Average Rating



In the image, it looks like Daiichi Asahi ramen, but when I actually tried it, it was a completely different type of ramen. The first thing I noticed when I tried it was that the noodles were thin. Although the noodles were thin, they were chewy and soaked up the soup well and had a good texture. The seasoning of the soup is a little strong so that the thin noodles get mixed well with the soup. Also, the chashu was the softest and meltiest of all the chashu I've ever eaten, which I really liked. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was good, and each seat was comfortable, making it feel like a set meal restaurant where you can enjoy your meal in peace. The ramen in the image is a large serving of specially selected ramen with lots of green onions and extra chashu. When ordering, I always ask for the garlic to be added. Then the owner will add more garlic. It had a stronger garlic flavor than the burnt garlic ramen and was extremely delicious.

Developing a new ramen restaurant on the weekend.
This time, my mother, daughter, and I visited Ramen Mizuki near Nishioji Station. There are two parking lots behind the store, so you can also use your car.
It was Saturday noon, but the restaurant was almost full of amateurs. This time, three of us ordered the following.

Special Ramen (average) 780 yen
+ Gyoza set 330 yen
Ramen (average) 750 yen

The soy sauce in the soup seems to be different for ramen and special. My daughter's ramen was made without onions to make it easier to eat. It's typical of Kyoto ramen, and the backfat is floating in the chicken soy sauce, making it delicious. The noodles are thin and straight with plenty of green onions. It was a simple but delicious ramen with two slices of chashu. The set consisted of 5 gyoza and rice, which was satisfying.

I received the special ramen for 780 yen.
At first glance, I thought it would be greasy and heavy with brown back fat, but it was light and didn't smell like pork bones.
There was a lot of soup, so it didn't get cold easily, and it coated the thin noodles well enough that I could eat it till the end without getting bored.
The grilled pork is tender and the seasoning of the menma is also very special.
A shop that rarely serves hoppy.
All the staff members are very nice.
There are a total of 11 parking spaces behind the store, so you can easily go there.
I look forward to hearing from you again.
PS The fried rice was also delicious.
