The owner was originally a French chef.We recommend “Ajitama Chuka Soba”. Soups made from duck, Nagoya cochin(=Brand chicken),seaweed,shiitake mushrooms,etc. are transparent and beautiful in appearance, and their taste is excellent. What is surprising is that they do not use Kaesi(=based ramen source). It’s really surprising that soup alone produces this flavor. The noodles are straight thin noodles that enhance the beauty and flavor of the soup. The ingredients are tastefully served with Ajitama(=seasoned boiled egg),Menma(=seasoned bamboo shoots), green onions,and very soft Char-siu.Hachigo is a recommended ramen shop in Ginza.
