K's Garden: A Fancy Looking Cafe That Actually Serves Ramen!
"K's Cafe" was created by the owner who used to work at a Western restaurant. The atmosphere of the restaurant is more like a cafe rather than a ramen store.
When you first look at the menu, it says "Soy Sauce Ramen," "Miso Ramen," "Soy Sauce Tsukemen" and so on...a rather typical ramen menu. But wait! One menu is totally unorthodox. It says "Cold Potage Ramen." We must take a look at this unique ramen!
Cold Potage Ramen
The "Cold Potage Ramen" has a total of 10 toppings such as chicken and fresh vegetables. It is very rare to see tomatoes and broccoli as toppings for ramen. Looks super fresh and healthy!
The chicken is seasoned with herbs and is super tender as it is cooked with sous-vide. Dip the meat into the sweet soup for some additional flavor!
Unique toppings such as broccoli, tomato and corn are colorful and visually-pleasing too. But, ordinary toppings such as eggs are added too! It is a well-balanced bowl of ramen.
The Rich Soup
The soup is a potage, so it is made from onions, potatoes and other vegetables that are stewed to bring out the sweet and gentle taste. But, with some chicken and pork broth added, the rich but refreshing taste is made.
Although the texture of the soup seems rich, the taste remains light and refreshing. Because of this light taste and it being cold, it is a very popular menu during the summer season.
The Pasta-Like Noodles
The medium thickness of the ramen noodles give a more chewy texture to the ramen. With the ramen noodles being put together with the potage soup, a cream pasta-like taste is made.
Finish Your Meal With Cream Risotto
Even if you finished eating your noodles, you are not done yet! Order "half rice" for ¥100 to enjoy the soup until the very last sip. During lunch time, you can get this rice for free!
Place the rice into the bowl of soup.
Mix the rice and soup together just like a cream risotto.
Finally, sprinkle some black pepper for a finishing touch. Enjoy the rich taste of the soup until the very end!
Outside of the store, they even have a terrace seat. "K's Garden" is a ramen restaurant that serves traditional miso and shoyu ramen in a cafe-like store. This article focused on the "Cold Potage Ramen", which is a Western and Japanese fusion ramen. It is a ramen that you can find nowhere else! Also, it is much healthier and you can have a balanced meal with just one bowl of ramen!
A 7 minute walk from Otsuka Station North exit. If you want a healthy and unique bowl of ramen, perhaps the "Cold Potage Ramen" is a dish for you!
