Take a look at this beaut.
That there is kara-shio ramen. Kara is ‘spicy’ and Shio is ‘salt’, as in a salt-based ramen.
Man oh man was it good.
Oreryu Ramen, or ‘my way’ Ramen shop, is one of my favourites. Here’s 4 reasons why.
1. See that fried chicken on the picture? That is easily the best I’ve ever had at a ramen restaurant. Most fried chicken is bog standard, but I always order this moist, generously garlic-sprinkled dirty bird.
2. Their permanent abience music is various albums of The Beatles. Enough said.
3. Their spicy ramen is actually spicy. The kara-shio was perfect, and came as a set with rice and gyouza for less than 1000 yen; this is much cheaper than tourist trap places.
4. It’s close to my house. Not very helpful to you guys, but I live a five minute walk from this place – meaning I can waddle home after stuffing myself full instead of worrying about trains.
