黒須 (Kurosu in Jimbocho)

神保町黒須

Jimbocho, for reasons I can't really figure out, is gaining more and more quality ramen shops in recent years. This part of town is almost all business, with the majority of the country's publishers maintaining a Jimbocho address. Hungry writers?

Bringing things full-circle, the building just across the alley from today's ramen is the home of Shueisha, the publisher of Weekly Playboy, a magazine I worked with for quite some time. Does anyone remember our weekly ramen corner, ラーメンアメリカ人?

Just look for the easy-to-recognize sign.

Kurosu is only open for a few hours at lunch.

Just three menu items. From top down they have shoyu ramen, niboshi ramen, and a tsukemen. As this was the first time, the ramen had to be shoyu.

Very quality Oyama chickens from Shimane (島根県) Prefecture go into the soup.

Although ramen has always had a strong pork element, these days shops are kicking their chicken game up very high. High quality yields great stock, great chicken oil, and great chicken chashu.

Kurosu's location is just off the main drag, so you might have to search a bit for it.
