I got tickets for Shio soba (most popular one) with boiled egg and rice with pork.
After I waited for about 1 hour, I had a Michelin starred ramen.
Topped with house made porcini duxelles sauce and white truffle oil.
It’s really yummy.
Soup is used Hamaguri clams, pork bone and Japanese broth.
Flavored boiled egg is also great.
This is side dish, rice with pork.
I drunk all of soup though usually I drink all soup of ramen.
To wait for 1 hour is little bit too much, but it’s worth to visit!
