Tokusei Barasoba Shio 特性バラそば塩(¥980)
Tokusei Barasoba Shio is a really popular item served at Barasobaya in Nakano. It consists of a crispy kind of seaweed, thin ramen noodles, large pieces of chashu pork, and instead of the usual soft-boiled egg, a raw egg yolk placed in the middle of the bowl to make everything creamier.
Shio Ramen With A Deep Umami
The broth is made primarily with pork bones (tonkotsu) and is on the "assari" (light) side. It's pretty clear but has a deep savoury taste that comes from the pork umami.
The ramen has some really nice and large pieces of pork back rib chashu that are the claim to fame of this ramen joint.
The reason why the chashu is so delicious is that it is first grilled and the marinated in a special broth for a long time so that it becomes full of flavours.
The homemade noodles have a low water content which makes them chewier than the average ramen noodles.
When you mix the egg yolk with the rest of the ingredients, it makes everything taste so creamy! It's a bit like the taste and texture you get from sukiyaki.
If you want to add a different twist to your ramen, you can add some of this white ginger for free. It goes surprisingly well with the soup of the ramen.
Barasobaya is located at a 5-minute walk from the Nakano Station. Definitely give it a try if you're in the area!
