麺匠ようすけ (Yosuke in Nakano)



Yosuke has been serving up tori paitan, creamy chicken soup ramen, since 2011. This style runs the gamut from milky white and elegant to a little off color and rougher. Yosuke falls into the latter category, with a lot of in-your-face flavors and impact.


Of course, that was what I ordered. There are three options. Go for assari if you want something light. Noukou means thick. Chou noukou is super thick, and the one I recommend.


Line up outside by number.


While newer places like Kagari are making headlines for their modern take on tori paitan, sometimes you just need to wander the confusing back alley's of Nakano and get a bowl that really kicks up the flavor.


Very cool part of town, by the way.

Who doesn’t love a big bowl of ramen? I wish I lived japan, I’d eat ramen for every meal. Thanks for sharing about this place and sharing pictures.
