A back alley in Ginza. This shop is as famous as "Kagari" that was relocated to same street. Both ramen shops usually have a long line. I like the atmosphere of this shop, an aura of chef, and the flavor of sake lees.
The food presentation always looks nice, the slice shape of green onions is beautiful. The soup made from sake lees, chicken, pork, clam, and oyster broth tastes very unique, has a full of flavor of sake lees. Aftertaste contains various flavors, so it's very interesting to find secret ingredients in this soup. The noodles are chewy, has a nice texture, go well with this soup. Especially, the combination of pickled ginger & this soup is amazing. After eating, it makes me feel nice & hot, and remind me that I ate "Irorimen" of a famous ramen shop "Ichifuku". Anyway, I am relieved to eat this in this sophisticated town, I again realized this is a great ramen.

Chukasoba Ginza Hachigou＠Higashiginza
◆ Ordered Menu
Tokusei Chukasoba 1,050 JPY
Third brand ramen shop of "Katsumoto" ramen chain. There is always a long line for the ramen, the wait time is about 1 hour.
It looks like a tanrei shoyu ramen（classical soy sauce ramen with chicken oil）, but it doesn't use any sauces, and uses only ingredients. Although not only no msg, but also no salt, the soup made from duck & chicken broth with refined chicken oil has a rich & premium flavor. Silky & thin noodles have a nice texture, enhances the flavor of the soup. Anyway, the famous Japanese traditional spot "Kabukiza" is near here, so I'm sure all people can enjoy this wonderful ramen. And this shop will be a famous in Japan.
