Today, I visited “Hirugao Tokyoekiten” which was specialized in shio(salt) ramen under “Setagaya Group”, one of the most popular ramen chain. It was located in “Tokyo Ramen Street” within “Tokyo Ichibangai”, B1F of south outlet of Yaesu, Tokyo station.
It seemed that it was a rule in “Tokyo Ramen Street” to buy a ticket before you stand in line. I bought a ticket of “ Shio Ramen Hirugaomori(￥1,080)” and enter the shop 12 minutes later. Ramen came to me 3 more minutes later.
Noodle was not only straight and smoothbut also had firm texture. Soup had good harmony of fish and animal meat. Salt played a good role to make one soft and somewhat rich. I noticed yuzu taste once. Great balance of all ingredients.
Really balanced ramen.
