おやじ (Oyaji in Sagamihara)

ラーメンおやじ 本店


Oyaji in Machida is one of the best miso ramen shops in town. But, actually, the Machida branch is just that, a branch. I finally, about six years later, made it to their main shop.


The menu has a few options, but you should go for the おやじ麺 - oyajimen - on your first time.  Or go spicy. Or special if you want all the toppings.


As with most ramen shops, the upper left button on the ticket machine is the winner.


So good. The miso is blended with lard to give it a creamy, rich aspect. Simple toppings to match the complex soup.


They make their original miso blend onsite, and if you are lucky enough you can catch them doing it.


The sign says "Feel free to take photos of us making the miso." Unfortunately, they weren't doing it when I was there.


I didn't sense a difference from their Machida shop, which might be more convenient.
