吉田製麺店 (Yoshida in Yokohama)



Yoshida is another highly ranked shop about 20 minutes south of Yokohama. Most people on this train line are headed to the Misaki port town for some of the best tuna in Japan. If you are heading there for their famous maguro ramen, do yourself a favor and have a bowl at Yoshida instead.


The chef offered two kinds of soup; a pork one and a chicken one. The recommended chicken came out as a milky white paitan style that was both intense and soothing. Very nice, this one is like drinking a rich, salty, meaty cream.

Oh, and they forgo the usual chashu for a couple pieces of motsu offal on top. An interesting choice.


It is worth noting that they are more famous for their tsukemen than their ramen.


The noodles are made in-house, and by the sheer number of noodle-storage boxes, they do a lot of business.
