[Tokyo] Ito Akabane (自家製麺 伊藤 赤羽店) in Akabane

Sponsored links

Ito (自家製麺 伊藤) is very popular niboshi ramen shop. Their head shop is in Oji area. And also they have a branch in Akabane. Akabane branch have high reputation as well as the head shop.

There are only 8 counter seats in the shop. It’s like sleeping places of an eel. There’s no spaces to go through at the back of the seats. There is a door just behind the seats. At first, we entered the shop and bought a ticket at the ticket vending machine in front of the main door. Then we got out once, and opened the door behind vacant seat and entered again.

I ordered a chuka soba. It’s normal niboshi ramen. Niboshi is dried sardine. Their ramen soup had plenty of extracts of dried sardine.

Chuka soba (中華そば) 600 yen

The soup have expensive dried from Kujyukuri of Chiba.They use expensive dried sardine from Kujyukuri of Chiba. So, the soup is precious and they don’t serve much soup. The surface of the noodles were rough and picked up the soup more easily.

The soup was lukewarm. This is because they think hot soup deprive of the flavor of noodles. I think hot soup is essential to ramen. So, I can’t agree with them. It had bitterness of dried sardines. That’s good. It was tasty. So, I wanted more soup. Hot soup 🙁
