Yoroiya's 'Twins Egg Ramen' Features a Double-Egg Yolk Ajitama!! [Asakusa]

Asakusa

Asakusa is filled with awesome ramen shops. Among those, 'Asakusa Ramen Yoroiya' is perhaps the most famous in the area. The shop is beloved by locals and tourists alike and often has a line stretching out the door. We went to try the 'Futago Tamago Ramen,' which features a rare egg with two yolks!

A Popular Shop That Always Has a Line

'Tokusei Ramen (Shoyu)' (¥1,000)
Yoroiya is the most famous ramen shop in Asakusa, one of Tokyo's ramen mechas. The shop is very close to the iconic Sensoji, located right off the bustling Nakamise Shopping Street. You can always expect to see a line formed outside, as the famous shop is loved by Tokyoites and tourists alike.

The shop owner is a born and raised Asakusa-ite and grew up eating Asakusa's chuka soba, which is the influence behind the ramen served here. The amber soup, medium-thick noodles, homemade menma, and nori are all reminiscent of a classic Tokyo-style ramen.

The Lucky 'Twins Egg' Ramen

One of the secret specialties of Yoroiya is this 'Futago Tamago Ramen' (Twins Egg Ramen).
Apparently, there's a special breed of chicken from Iwate Prefecture that produces these rare eggs. The shop boils and then pickles them in flavoring overnight.

twin eggs are normally quite rare and are considered to be lucky. There's really 2 yolks inside one egg!
futago_ramen_soup
The soup base is made from Japanese chicken and pork bones, dried sardines, katsuo bushi (bonito), and konbu. The soup is accented with a fresh but mild flavor of yuzu, and is so delicious that you can drink it to the last drop!
futago_ramen_noodles
The noodles are a custom order from 'Asakusa Kaikarou,' a local Asakusa ramen noodle institution. They use high-quality wheat from Nagano prefecture and have a lovely fragrance and chewiness.
