This Ramen Shop Made it Into the Michelin Guide After Just 1 Year
Nishiogi Tou is a newcomer to the ramen scene that was good enough to be added to the Michelin Guide after just a year of operation! The shop's ramen features handmade noodles, incredible soup, and sakura woodchip-smoked chashu that make it a standout bowl!
'Nishiogi Tou' the Shop that made the Michelin Guide After Just a Year of Business
Nishiogi Tou serves Fukushima-style "shirakawa ramen" made from chicken and pork bone base with signature handmade curly noodles. This ramen is definitely worth the trip to Nishi Ogikubo Station!
Complex Chicken and Pork Bone Soup
There's something special about eating homemade noodles, which are somewhat of a rarity in the ramen world. These noodles are somewhat soft compared with standard ramen noodles, but still have a lovely chewiness that is satisfying to eat. They're a great match for the clear, oily soup.
Chashu Smoked with Sakura Woodchips
The longer that the chashu sits in the soup, the more that the light smoky flavor bleeds into the soup, adding a pleasant accent to the flavor.
