Good ramen shops gathering Ginza area !
I intended to go to so popular ramen shop near Ginza subway station, but I found there were so much people waiting in front of the shop and I gave up and went toward another shop that is named “Kyusyu Jangara Ramen”.
But Jangara ramen’s apperance is so noisy and the weather was hot that day. I lost my interest in eating at Jangara Ramen 😛
Instead of that, I felt like eating at another shop some doors away.
Though it looks like cafe, but it is no mean ramen shop.
Mugi to Olive
It means buckwheat and olive in English.
Ticket vending machine is at the door inside of the shop.Recently some ramen shops use a word “SOBA” for their ramen because they take some ways of cooking soba or ingredients.
This shop, too. But basically, those are ramen 🙂
I took some time to decide my ramen, and finally I bought a ticket for clam soba and sat down.
Olive oil was on the table. The notice says we should use it for maze-soba (ramen with sauce, without soup)
Well, it is the origin of the shop name.
After a while, my clam soba (蛤SOBA, 950 yen) was served.
Lots of clams on it ! About 6 or 7 clams ! And more, much toppings were on it.
The waiter gave me a bowl for shells after eating those meats.
The soy sauce based soup had plenty of taste of clams and dried bonito.
The noodle had buckwheat flavor, as their shop name ! And I felt something soba flavor.
It was said that old and squalid ramen shop serves more delicious ramen than new and stylish shop.
But I understood it is no longer a truth. Especially in big cities 🙂
