“Mensho Nakaue” in Higashi Mikuni
For today’s lunch I went to “Mensho Nakaue”, a ramen joint in Higashi-Mikuni.
Before I went there I heard that there’s one type of ramen and three types of tsukemen so I had planned on just going with a regular ramen. However, there happened to be a limited, special-offer ramen that looked way too appealing!
“Sea Urchin Tonkotsu Ramen” ¥800
A blended sea urchin and tonkotsu broth, topped with chashu pork that’s been basted and grilled with a sea urchin paste. What a decadent ramen!
The broth is pretty thick and has pieces of what definitely looks to be sea urchin throughout it!
Woowww, this is soo goooddd!!
The rich tonkotsu flavor stands up to sea urchin’s strong umami and sweetness. I was surprised by how deliciously well they matched!
Extra thick noodles…
The noodles have a wonderfully chewy bite to them and their flavor only becomes more delicious as you eat it!
Plus, when the broth fuses with the flavor of the noodles it’s even better~!
Chasshu Crusted with Sea Urchin Paste
The pork alone has a really good flavor, but when you add the Sea Urchin flavor to it it gets even better!
You can eat the whole thing in the blink of an eye!
Only 10 bowls of the Sea Urchin Tonkotsu Ramen are available per lunch and dinner service!
Of course, their house ramen and three types of tsukemen are sure to be delicious so I’d love to try them all!
