Aoshima Shokudo｜The 2019st place of "Really delicious Ramen 1 Famous Stores in Tokyo XNUMX" selected by AI from the University of Tokyo! What is the taste of ginger soy sauce ramen from Niigata?
Won Michelin Bib GourmandGinza Hachigo,Toy boxIt was a store called Aoshima Shokudo in Akihabara that won the number one spot in the ranking, overcoming many famous stores. Qingdao Shokudo is a long-established ramen restaurant whose main store is the originator of ginger soy sauce ramen in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture and boasts a history of more than 1 years since its establishment and is one of the five major ramen restaurants in Niigata. It seems to be a very famous restaurant in Niigata Prefecture, such as being introduced as a local gourmet at the secret Kenmin show.
Aoshima Shokudo in Akihabara is currently the only branch outside Niigata Prefecture, and it is also a famous store that has been introduced in various media and food blogs, such as "Teramon Jimon's refusal to collect data" and "Arashi niyagare." The eating logs and Twitter reviews are also said to be “good”, and I feel one story that regional stores have entered the city and shined in the crown.
That said, the Aoshima Shokudo doesn't have any interest in such an honor, and it seems that he continues to open his business day by day. The store on the first floor of the multi-tenant building is almost completely undecorated in terms of appearance and interior, and the side of the store has shutters open all the time.ホ ー ム ペ ー ジThere is also, but I get the impression that it was made a long time ago and left as it is.
When I visited such a shop after 2:20 pm, there was a line of about 30 people even after the busy lunch time. Turn right at the corner to the entrance of the shop. It took about 40 to 5 minutes from this position to enter the store (actually, there is a waiting space for about 6 to 10 people in the store, and wait another 3 minutes in the store). Of course, even after this, customers will continue to line up. If you want to reduce the waiting time as much as possible, it would be better to visit the shop at 4-XNUMX pm, which is a little later.
Char siu is cheap! Add toppings to ginger and soy sauce ramen for your favorite style
After entering the store, purchase a meal ticket at the ticket vending machine on the right side of the entrance. There are only two types of ramen menu at Aoshima Shokudo Akihabara, the basic ginger soy sauce ramen "Aoshima ramen" and its char siu noodle version "Aoshima char siu". ..
You can make your own ramen by adding char siu, cut into 6 pieces, spinach, menma, chopped green onion as you like... "Kaki no Tane (price 540 yen)" at the bottom right of the menu. What? Apparently, there is a persimmon seed for souvenirs made by Aoshima Shokudo. What does it taste like? I was a little intrigued.
After purchasing a meal ticket and sitting in the waiting seat, a clerk from the kitchen...
Show me your meal ticket! !
I will call out. The Qingdao Shokudo's meal ticket is made much larger than other stores, so you can see the menu you ordered even from a distance. If you ask, let's show the meal ticket to the clerk.
Aoshima char siu: Ginger works and warms your body. Recommended by all means during the cold winter months.
The Aoshima Shokudo has only 9 seats for counter seats along the kitchen. Due to the influence of the new Corona, each seat is separated by an instant vinyl sheet. People who have finished eating leave the store with a quick pop, but in the Aoshima Shokudo, it is a rule that the next customer sits in an empty seat.
There is no such thing as crowding up seats between customers. If you come to eat with your partner, friends, or children, you will have to leave your seat during the meal, so you need to be a little careful...
I sat right in the center of the counter, a seat overlooking the entire kitchen. Since I already showed the meal ticket, the ordered Qingdao char siu (price 900 yen) was seated as soon as I sat down...
In a bowl that gives off a scent of soy sauce, roasted pork, spinach, menma, and seaweed are scattered around. For the time being, it seems that all the toppings are in this bowl. The toppings purchased at the ticket machine will be used to increase the amount. It's a plus of 100 yen each for adding pork and homemade noodles, so it might be a good idea to increase your favorite toppings from the beginning.
First of all, sip the soup... The soy sauce has a delicious taste of pork, and ginger is very effective there, but it has a rich aftertaste. The soup's melted backfat is full of flavor, but the ginger is exquisitely effective, and you can't smell the smell of pork at all.
However, it is said that this soup also uses chemical seasonings, and it is also a sinful soup that is also subject to criticism by ramen mania. Well, I don't only eat ramen, so I don't think I'm okay if I eat occasionally?
One of the noodles is a home-made multi-steamed noodle made in the Niigata noodles department. It's a little soft, and a little bit of lightly entangled with the soup, leaving a smooth throat and staying in the Suisui stomach. But personally, I think it's okay to make the noodles a little harder... Actually, some people ordered that way.
And char siu, which is highly regarded by Aoshima Shokudo fans. It seems as if the char siu carved in various sizes, thick and small, expresses the store's management policy as it is. The char siu, of course, is soft and juicy, but when thrown together into the mouth, the irregular shape of the char siu gives good stimulation to the mucous membranes.
Anyway, this char siu was a pleasure to eat, and I ate up the char siu all at once. Char siu increase is also cheap, so you should have ordered char siu from the beginning...
One last thing. As you continue to eat ramen, the effect of ginger that is already on your stomach gradually warms your body. Since it contains a lot of ginger, you can expect some medicinal effects. Although there are some places where we are concerned about chemical seasonings, it is a recommended cup to warm your body, especially during the cold season in winter.
I'm also worried about Niigata, where the main store is... Aoshima Shokudo Akihabara store is a 6-minute walk from Akihabara station on the JR Yamanote line, which is the nearest station.
