My best ramen shop – Ganko

I wanted to eat salty ramen after a long absence and went to Ganko in Yotsuya-Sanchome.

This shop’s shopkeeper is origin of “Ganko” and there are several ramen shops that are named “Ganko” and ran by his pupils.
But I haven’t had ramen at another “Ganko”.

Nevertheless it was rain, though it was already over 2 p.m., there were about 6 people waiting in front of the shop.

His ramen is very salty.
But I love the salty ramen.
Recently there are many ramen shops serving healthy and light taste ramen, but I think ramen is salty and bad for our health.
So, I don’t eat ramen so frequently though I love ramen.

The shopkeeper said he didn’t have enough ingredients for our ramen. So he cooked special ramen (Less ingredients ) for us 🙂
Chinese noodles with soy sauce soup and swimming crabs oil, and less ingredients (醤油ラーメンカニ油トッピング少ないやつ, 780 yen)
(Ordinary it is 880 yen)

I ordered a Chinese noodle with soy sauce soup and swimming crabs oil. But I couldn’t feel the taste of swimming crabs at all because the taste of soy sauce was strong.
But my friend’s Chinese noodle with salted soup and swimming crabs oil had clear flavor of swimming crabs ! Still my soup was delicious !!!
And more, the half-boiled egg was awesome !! The roast pork was melted in my mouth quickly.

Speaking of Yotsuya-sanchome, I can’t forget to drop in at the shop !!!
Fukunaga Fruits Parlor.

Unfortunately, breads were already out of stock when we got to there. (Eh? Of course I intended to eat fruits sandwich… !)

I expected that they started serving peach parfait, but unfortunately they didn’t yet.
Peach, strawberry, grape, persimmon etc… is served in limited season, but they have mango all year around 🙂

Mango Parfait (マンゴーパフェ, 800 yen)
Plenty of pieces of sweet mango in it, the glass was small though. And two pieces of cherries on it.

The mango sorbet tasted rich 😀

My friend’s. They said that cherry was still smaller at that time. But I thought those were large enough 🙂
