Shinjuku Ramen House Revisited
Two years ago, we ate at Shinjuku Ramen House as it was the closest restaurant to us that time that served Japanese cuisine. On this visit, we ate at Shinjuku Ramen House because we wanted to eat at Shinjuku Ramen House. It was around 3pm in the afternoon so we had the place to ourselves!
Prior to the recent ramen craze here, Shinjuku Ramen House has been one of the pioneers in serving Japanese Cuisine to us at Little Tokyo. They offer a lot of choices for ramen and recently, they are now serving Tsukumen (dipping noodles). For that afternoon, here’s what we had.
On my first visit, I made a note to try out their gyoza on my next visit so here’s to it coming true! Dubbed as one of their best sellers to which I would agree. My gyoza needs was simple; I like to eat gyoza where you can really taste the meat inside and it has a light soup/liquid on it (e.g. like xiao long bao). Their gyoza fits that description so I have no problems.
Something new from Shinjuku as they are now serving Tsukemen. Tsukemen (dipping noodles) was something I initially tried at Mitsuyado Sei-Men. You will have dry ingredients which you will dip in a strong flavored soup. The soup base was a lighter in taste as compared to Mitsuyado Sei-men; where I can sip on it and won’t be overwhelmed by the strong flavors. However, what stands out for this dish would be the pork where it was so soft and it-melts-in-your-mouth yummy!
For ramen, I picked the Sapporo Corn Ramen so that I can enjoy the flavor more (as I remembered that their beef ramen in shoyu broth was lacking in flavor). Thanks for the corn and the melted butter, I thoroughly enjoyed the upgraded shoyu broth. Wished that it had more chashu slices though.
That’s it for my second visit to Shinjuku… now what ramen should I try next? Maybe the cold ramens? Let’s see.
Till next time,
