Recommended menu "Miso ramen"
The recommended menu is “Miso ramen(=ramen in miso-based soup)”. For those who prefer a spicy taste with a punch, “Spicy Miso Ramen” is also available. In addition, there are miso and spicy miso Tsukemen(=Dipping noodles).The noodles used for Miso ramen are thick, curly noodles that are competitive with thick soups. The ramen soup is a pork bone broth soup that is simmered thickly.Then combine with the thick miso. The smell of this miso will add to your appetite. The ingredients for the ramen are vegetables stir-fried after receiving the order, Menma(=seasoned bamboo shoots), Char-siu(pork stewed in soysauce), and shredded Japanese leeks . Plenty of stir-fried vegetables are added to the delicious ramen soup, and the refreshing and sweetness of the vegetables neutralizes the richness of the rich soup. The Char-siu is so soft that it is likely to dissolve in the soup and irresistibly melts in the mouth with delicious pork flavor. In addition, if you eat shredded Japanese leeks with this delicious ramen Char siu, you can have a rich Char siu refreshingly.It is also popular to add Ajitama(=seasoned boiled egg) using brand eggs as a topping for ramen. You can also pour the peppers on the table if you like. By the way, you can order extra for stir-fried vegetables and garlic as ramen ingredients. Also, rice is free for lunch on weekdays!
