藤しろ (Fujishiro in Sangenjaya)

麺屋 藤しろ 三軒茶屋店


Another bowl with Rina Hirata, the English-speaking AKB48 member who has been slurping some of Tokyo's great bowls with me throughout the year.


Today's shooting took us out to trendy Sangenjaya, a suburb just west of Shibuya.

This was one of the last shows we filmed. Thank you everyone who supported #TokyoExtra for nearly 40 episodes.


Fujishiro has praise from all the magazines. The chef trained at Honda, one of Tokyo's most famous ramen shops.


Tori paitan, creamy chicken soup, that is enhanced with fried beef sinew. It's a bit more rustic than your average chicken-only soup.


The aromatic drizzle of oil on top gives it a boost. Most shops with this style of creamy ramen know that a little fried garlic and onion go a long way.


Sangenjaya isn't far from Shibuya, so if you live or are staying in the area, this is a good choice for a quick bowl.

Sangenjaya is the terminus of Tokyo's other tram route; the less-frequently shot Tokyu Setagaya line. There is also a Don Quijote store nearby I haven't shopped. So this ramen shack is going on the short list for my next time.
