麺屋 翔 月1限定 (Special Chicken Ramen at Menya Sho in Shinjuku)

麺屋 翔


I feel like I have written about Menya Sho before on this site. I've certainly been there many, many times. It is one of my go to spots for a clean bowl made with quality chicken. A stellar bowl on any of the other 29 days of the month.


What is that supposed to mean?

Well, once a month they do a limited, premium bowl with a specialty chicken. 媛っこ地鶏 - himeko jidori - is a local chicken from Ehime Prefecture. It is supposed to have an earthier, more hearty taste, though that might just be advertiser talk for a gamier chicken. Either way, it makes for an excellent bowl of ramen!


Go for the shoyu, the deep soy sauce matches well with that himeko. Princess?


You'll have to check the web for the exact day, but it is usually around the 28th of the month.
