かずや (Kazuya in Ekoda)

ラーメンかずや

There is a very famous ramen shop in Ekoda named Kintoki. I journeyed there with Michael from the blog Like a Fish in Water, and his young daughter. Our mission was to slurp, and slurp well.

Sometimes this sort of thing happens. His poor girl was nearly in tears. It turns out she was really looking forward to slurping some ramen with me.

Well, Ekoda has a very large community of ramen shops just outside the station, and wandering around looking for something good was no problem. Kazuya looked great.

Shoyu and shio were both on the menu.

A very normal, local bowl, in the sense that I would come often if I lived nearby. This is the kind of ramen that people fall in love with in Japan.

The chashu was particularly tender and flavorful.
