Hakodate Shio Ramen Goryokaku
Time Out says
This shop in Ogikubo specialises in authentic shio (salt) ramen made by a Hakodate native – that’s the port city in Hokkaido which invented shio ramen.
A bowl of ramen costs ¥750 and the light broth of pork and chicken also includes seaweed and scallops sourced from Hokkaido, giving it a rich flavour that will have you planning a trip to Hakodate. The shop also offers classic ramen toppings from Hokkaido including a slice of fu (wheat gluten) and gagome kombu (kelp, ¥150). When soaked into the soup, the kelp turns into a slippery algae – a unique texture for a bowl of ramen. Under the toppings, you’ll find straight and fine noodles with the right amount of bite, just like the ramen you’d find in Hakodate.
