The random jyajyamen shop I chose just so happened to be the most popular one in town.
Dozens of celebrities have been here. My kind of adventure!
The shop is cramped and steamy. Let the ritual that is jyajyamen begin!
Jyajyamen is a dish with Chinese origin, heavy Korean influence, and available in Japan. See! These three countries can get along just fine!
For once, the English translation was great. I asked who wrote it, but that is a mystery for the ages. To sum up this entire page of text is easy. Mix it up, eat 90%, crack in a raw egg, mix it up, get some soup added, finish.
Cucumber, green onions, grated ginger, and that black miso that Korean jyajyamen is so known for. Mix it up.
Leave a bit on the plate.
With the beaten egg and clear, hot soup. All that for just over 400 yen.
This particular shop is just across the street from the old castle ruins, now a well-manicured park. Both are highly recommended.
