ついに、「銀座 篝」の鶏白湯ラーメンを食べてきました!

They have started their business in 2013. They soon won them popularity. I know people used to have to wait for two or three hours.

There are long lines in front of the shop at lunchtime now, too.
But when I got to there after work on workday, it was past 6 p.m.
There were only (only ?) 7 people in front of the shop.
Almost all people seemed to be tourists from abroad.

平日、会社終わって18時過ぎに着くと7人待ち。以前はもっともっとすごかったらしいです。休日は今もスゴイんだろうなぁ。

Attention. There’re some rules to wait in line. The shop stand along the narrow alley. So, staffs watch line carefully lest they are trouble for people nearby.

Great number of tourists from abroad visit this shop, so attention is written in both English and Japanese.

列に並ぶためのルール。狭い路地なので、ちょくちょく店員さんがチェックに来ます。

Menu, too. The staff handed it to me while waiting and he took my order after a while.
Of course, I ordered Toripaitan ramen as planned. With soft-boiled egg.

There’s no ticket vending machine. We pay money at the table when we stand up to leave.

メニュー。並んでいる間に渡され、注文。外国人が多く、メニューは日本語と英語を1枚に。

There are only 8 seats. I waited for 20 minutes or so, and then the staff led me to the seat.
I already ordered my ramen while waiting, so condiments for toripaitan ramen was served as soon as I was seated.
Deep fried onion and grated ginger.

20分くらいして席に通されました。注文は済んでいるのですぐにこれが出てきました。鶏白湯用のフライドオニオンと生姜。

This is the Toripaitan ramen (鶏白湯SOBA, 980 yen) with soft-boiled egg (味玉, 120 yen) that I had wanted to have for a long time !
It had chicken breast meat and seasonal vegetables on it.
Seasonal vegetables were green asparagus, cherry tomato, young corn, radish sprouts and so on.

これが篝の鶏白湯ラーメン。鶏チャーシューと、季節の野菜(アスパラ、ミニトマト、カイワレ、ヤングコーンなど)がトッピングされてます。

Narrow and straight noodles dressed with thick toripaitan soup was tasty. The toripaitan soup was rich and creamy. Though it had much salt and fat, I could eat it  smoothly.

濃厚な鶏白湯スープがしっかり絡んでオイシイ。丁寧に裏ごししてあるので、喉に引っかかることがありません。塩分・油分強めですがスルスル食べちゃいます。

Added deep fried onion and grated ginger. The ginger added it refreshing taste. Toripaitan soup is basically have thick taste, so it’s good idea to change the tastes and add refreshing tastes on the way.

途中でフライドオニオンと生姜を追加。生姜を入れるとサワヤカになります!

Though I can’t eat so much, if you have enough space in your stomach, please try ordering rice and adding the toripaitan soup into the rice bowl and eating it like porridge. 😉

I want to try bonito (niboshi) soup ramen next time.
Only 20 – 30 minutes wait doesn’t bother me. (Though I never wait for 2-3 hours)
