(Moved) Tsukiji Market : Nira soba at Yajima (やじ満, 茂助だんご)

sponsored link

Help ! Unexpectedly Tsukiji was crowded !

I got to Odayasu for breakfast around 7:30 a.m. as usual, but to my disappointed, there were about five people in front of the shop !
I have to leave Tsukiji until 8:20 in time for starting time of work, so, I gave up having breakfast at Odayasu and went toward another shops.
But almost all shops had at leas four people in front of the shop.
I thought it was because of Chinese New Year at first. But there were many Japanese. Well, I remembered that was Friday between national holiday and weekend :p

I tried to follow the line in front of Yonehana (Four people waited), but I found there was no people waiting in front of Yajima. And more, there was only one vacant seat ! I entered Yajima without hesitation !

先日小田保に行くも、平日朝にまさかの5人待ちで跳ね返され、他の店にも跳ね返された私をやじ満が救ってくれました。

Just after that, some people came and waited. I was lucky !

I chose Nira-soba (ramen with leek, ニラそば, 950 yen).
This is the most popular food in Yajima.
SO many leeks. And fried pork coated with starch, onion, dried Cloud Ear Mushroom, bamboo shoot, garlic and so forth in it. Soy sauce based soup had thick taste. And it was salty if you drink it without noodles.

あやうく朝ごはんを食べ損ねるところでしたが、このニラソバがとってもおいしくて大満足。

But narrow noodles and another ingredients dressed with this soup was so delicious. Especially, it is good for cold body such a blazing morning. I like it best in all ramens that I had at Yajima. No.2 is oyster miso ramen 🙂

いままで食べたやじ満のラーメンの中で一番好きです。

I dropped in at Mosuke Dango on my way to the gate because they sold strange wagashi…

Strawberry Sakuramochi ! (Not strawberry daifuku !) 356 yen.
Those are like Hina ningyo.

ヘンなもの売ってる・・・( ゚д゚)、と茂助で気になってつい買ってしまったいちご桜餅。かわいいし、おいしかったです(^^)

The sakuramochi itself is ordinary one. And the strawberry was put on it. So, at first, I ate the strawberry and then enjoyed sakuramochi 🙂
