Ramen Yoshikawa Reviews

Favourite was the sardine don and tsukemen. Thick, super flavourful and well balanced stock with light citrusy notes, not fishy at all.


The oyster ramen is simply delicious. The soup is packed with oyster essence and the slight lemon taste is so welcoming as it adds a citrus kick to the soup. Soaking in the lovely soup, are the plump and fresh oysters that were torched. Do not miss their sides too. The shop is about a 30-minute bus ride from Kawagoe main station.


Waited for 30 minutes even in the noon of the working day, I like the Niboshi soup and the 2 kinds of chasyu also very delicious, the most surprise for me is the seafood Ton, so don't miss it.


It's worth waiting in line for a while during the launch time. I ate oyster noodles, which, to my knowledge, is not rahmen in a strict sense but falls in a broader noodle category, and a small braised pork rice bowl. at the first sip of noodle soup, a rich flavor of oyster instantly rose to my nose and a hint of lemon had a perfect match with the richness of oyster. Noodles were thin and had a nice balance with the soup. At the fist glance, the presentation of braised pork bowl was a bit eccentric in that it was fully covered by sheets of roasted pork but the taste was rather traditional. Although the location is away from any transportation hubs (neither Kawagoe, Fujimino, nor Sayama), it worth visiting if you are noodle lovers.
