Shirakawa ramen in Chiba (Matsuhidai)

“There is a branch of so famous Shirakawa ramen shop near Matsuhidai station”
My friend said, so I followed him to there. Though I didn’t know “Matsuhidai” at all.
Only I knew was that Matsuhidai is in Matsudo city, Chiba prefecture.
On arriving at the station, I was surprised, because there was nothing !
More rural than Nanakodai station that I went before.

I could see the shop from the station. Also I could see the station from the shop.
Of course, those are close, but furthermore, there are no obstract !

Well, the shop stands on such a rural area, but there were much people waiting in front of the shop.

The shop have a wide range of parking lot and the shop is large, too. It is more local eatery than ramen shop.

The shop serves shoyu(soy sauce) ramen and shio(salted) ramen.
Shirakawa ramen is a local ramen of Fukushima.

Recently I like shio ramen very much, so I ordered a shio ramen with wonton and half-boiled egg.

The narrow noodles was good, too. It tasted good.

The soup was quite lightly seasoned. It differed from now popular taste. Now, soup that have much taste of fish, pork or chicken is so popular.

My friend ordered shoyu ramen with roast pork, wonton and half-boiled egg.

I tasted it, it was also lightly seasoned all the same.

This “の” is cute 🙂

There are chopped onions in a bottle on the table. The waitress said, “please put them into the soup on the way and enjoy the change of the taste.”

So, My friend and I did.

I prefer it !
With a good flavor of onions, more tasty !
I felt the shoyu ramen, too.

I had heard that each local ramen in Fukushima is lightly seasoned (Nevertheless I hadn’t eaten), and I found it is true concerning Shirakawa ramen.
