No photos. No press. No nuthin',
That is the mantra at the latest shop from Miyazaki-san, the master of Soranoiro.
This shop replaces his Salt & Mushroom establishment. The idea is for 100% of their following to be word of mouth. Fans will tell fans, and it will organically become one of Tokyo's most famous shops.
Does it have what it takes?
Absolutely. Every ingredient is premium. Miyazaki-san has been travelling the country, meeting with small-time farms, getting the best-of-the-best chicken and pork. All that hard work pays off.
Should I write more? Should I write in detail about the use of clams to increase the level of umami? Should I discuss the Aomori chicken that is some of the most tender I've tasted? Should I nerd out about the pork, specifically sourced from a farm near the Seto Inland Sea?
You should just go for yourself. This is some next level gourmet ramen. Lunch only. No photos. Enjoy.
