I heard Ramen shop named “Ito” in Akabane that I had visited a few years ago opened Ginza branch. Ginza is close to my office. So, I’m very glad the new branch !
Ito Ginza branch
It is underground of the building.
It is located within a few minutes walk from Higashi Ginza station.
Also they are close to popular ramen shop named “Mugi to Olive” 🙂
Their opening time is 11 a.m. When I got to there 11:05 a.m., there were already two people seated.
And after I was seated, people visited the shop in succession.
As well as Akabane branch, there’s a ticket vending machine in the shop. After you enter the shop, you get a ticket at first. And then the staff guide you to seats.
Though Akabane branch was too narrow to walk through behind the back of people sitting along the counter seats, this Ginza branch is large.
Maybe it used to be kissaten or cafe or bar.
There’s a counter seats along the kitchen and some tables are there.
Hinai chicken soba with meat
I had small portion of Hinai chicken soba with meat (比内鶏 肉そば 小, 750 yen).
Basic ramen don’t have much soup. I ordered it with small portion.
It looks small, but the noodle was chewy and it’s filling. So, I felt full at last.
This noodle was chewy as well as what I ate at Akabane branch.
It is soy sauce soup having Hinai chicken broth. And the meat is roast pork. Not Hinai Chicken.
Because it didn’t have much soup, I didn’t feel guilty even I drunk it up :p (About salt…)
I wanted to take photo of the appearance again after I got out of the shop, but people gathered in succession, so I gave up. People long-awaited Ito in Ginza all the same !
I want to eat Niku soba (Dried sardine ramen with roast pork) next time. Now there’re many ramen shops in Ginza area.
