Noodle & Bar [Sancha Fukami]

I can't believe I neglected to write about this ramen shop which opened in our neighborhood a couple of years ago and which we finally went to last year. Unlike your regular ramen shops, you can see from the sign on the store that this is also a bar. It seems ramen bars have become rather popular in the last year or so. Anyway, the specialty of this shop if the Tokushima Ramen which is what I order while Mikako settled for a standard Chashu-men.


Tokushima Ramen / 徳島ラーメン

Americans may be put off by the raw egg but that's what probably makes it a Tokushima Ramen. The broth used is only a chicken broth. Instead of chashu, the ramen is topped with boneless pork rib and a lot of green onions and bamboo shoots. You mix the egg with the broth and enjoy your ramen. This ramen doesn't fill you up as much as a tonkotsu or soy-based ramen. Quite tasty.


Chashu-men / チャーシュー麺

The wife's bowl was filled with thick slices of chashu and also topped with onions, bamboo shoots and a slice of seaweed. I only had one bite but this was quite delicious as well.


Bon Appetit!
