[Tokyo] Perfect sio ramen at Ganko (がんこ) in Yotsuya Sanchome


Yotsuya Sanchome have a popular ramen shop that have a long waiting line before opening time. The ramen shop’s name is Ganko (がんこ). There are some branches, and their master run the Yotsuya’s “Ganko”. There is no distracting sign about the shop, so I took much time to find the shop. Much people wait in front of the shop even after 3 p.m. So, I can’t go to the shop because I hate waiting.

They are roughly divided into two ramen in the menus. “100 ramen” and “Jigoku ramen”. Jigoku means hell. Jigoku ramen may be spicy ? I don’t know. 100 ramen’s “100” means perfect, I think. Not 100 yen.

And each of them have “No.1” and “No.2”. But I don’t know the detail. Nothing is written about that on the menus. I didn’t ask the shopkeeper because he speaks too much that we don’t ask.

Well, this is the 100 ramen. Wooow…

100 ramen (100ラーメン) 800 yen

Its surface is covered with roast pork, wonton, green onion, menma and seaweed ! Every ingredients were tasty. Especially, the roast was soft and juicy.

Clearly, and salty salted ramen. I thought if I drink up it, I take too much salt, but I drunk up . After that I drunk water too much. It’s really delicious.

    I always get a bowl of rice when I order ramen so I can eat it with the salty broth. Your ramen looks delicious, I don’t think I’ve ever had one with wontons in it before.

      Do you eat your rice with soup or put your rice into the soup ?
      I like my rice put into the soup 🙂

      • lmjapan says:

        I’m the opposite of you, I put the soup into my rice. And I only spoon a small amount on top so it won’t be quite so salty. I think it’s one of the best ways to finish off a bowl of ramen!
