Oiishi Ne...!!!

I managed to have the opportunity to travel to Japan to savour one of the best ramen I have ever eaten. This little ramen store, smacked right at the end of Sapporo, Hokkaido’s Ramen Street (or the first shop depending on which end of the street you are coming from) opens only in the evening for dinner (unlike the rest of the shops) and sits a "not so comfortable" 9 person. However that is typical of most ramen shops. Yet it is because of this cosy environment that you get the most personalised service. Service is abit slow as the chef doubles up as the waiter, however you are ensured that your ramen will be cooked to perfection as it is served one by one. What is so unique about this shop is that it offers something that the rest of the ramen shop does not offer…..EGG!!! And before you wonder what is so special about this egg, allow me to describe to you that this egg looks like a normal hard boiled egg (marinated in soya sauce) but the yolk is watery…...amazing isn’t it? Although most ramen store in Sapporo does not offer Tonkatsu (pork bone) ramen which most people like, his shoyu (soya-based), shio (salt) and miso-based is just as good, or if not better than those found in Singapore. Although you might find the soup a little too salty for your liking, NEVER ask the chef to add water or change the taste of the soup as it is considered an insult to them. So if you have the chance to drop by at Sapporo, do drop by this shop. Unfortunately, since it has been awhile, I do not have the exact location of this ramen shop. Itadekimas!!!

I can't believe I missed this shop. I think I was too busy with the Nijo fish market. I think I went there like three times in a row to eat kani, smoked, boiled, raw... :)

Hi Pluto,

I remembered this post. That was ages ago when my family and I were at Hokkaido.

It was my virgin experience of an authentic bowl of Japanese ramen. The tamago was really memorable - I still can remember that particular experience.

Oh tried the smoked kani and scallops too. But I missed the uni and the 'live' squid the most.
