Miso chashu soba. Slightly spicy soup, lots of vegetables, and very very nice flat noodles! There are about 5 kinds of noodles in different thickness to choose from. I always have the flat and thick fettucini-like ones, which is 100yen more expensive. You can check out the photos outside the shop showing the available types of noodles.
Last time I had tsukemen(below), which you can really enjoy the taste and texture of the noodles itself, but normal soup noodles is also tasty.
Miso tsuke-men with kakuni(simmered pork). I love the flat noodles!! Even though the miso soup doesn’t stick so well to flat sheet noodles but still like it. Many people ask for “soup-wari”, i.e. adding soup into the tsuke-soup(which is too strong to drink by itself) to finish it off. They have a large menu, e.g. curry ramen, chicken soup ramen, clam soup ramen etc. Want to go back to try others!
Suzuran すずらん (review)
Add: 3-7-5 Shibuya, Shibuya-ku.
Tsukemen(called mori-soba in this shop) with wonton and seasoned egg. Also a slice of pork at the bottom. Wonton is good but pork and egg are so-so. The noodles are cold by default, but you can also choose hot noodles for Tsukemen, which is probably a better idea in this weather. This shop is a branch of the very popular Taishoken in Higashi-Ikebukuro.
Tsuke-men and wonton. The soup – made from dried salmon, pork and chicken etc. – is sour and sweet and chilli-powder kind of spicy…don’t really like it. Chashu is a bit hard and dry, the wonton is pork, quite heavy with salt and heavy. Need to drink a lot of water to eat all these. Stuffed up to my throat by the end.
味玉つけめん、８００円。It is alright.
みそつけめん＋炙りチャーシュー、９００円。 I waited, outside this ramen place, alone, in the freezing cold for 40 minutes!! There were only about 8 or 9 people outside and I thought it should probably take 15 minutes, and also I am not familiar with this area and only know this ramen place. Turned out to be a long wait….the noodles and the grilled pork were very very good, but then I was so cold and tired and hungry…^^;;;
辛味みそつけ麺。 Spicy miso tsukemen.
