From the company that brought us Hakata Ippudo and the Shinyokohama Raumen Museum, Gogyo is a modern version of the ramen-ya, incorporating a full bar and a trendy relaxing atmosphere. It’s a great place to enjoy ramen after a few drinks or with a few drinks. The fireball in the picture below is the ramen’s secret ingredient.
Kogashi Miso-ramen: The blackest ramen I’ve ever seen! It’s as if someone just threw noodles in mud. Apparently they char the miso, creating dirt-like particles, before mixing it into the soup. A truly unique ramen! The soup had a strong onion miso flavor that did not disappoint. The toppings (egg, chashu, negi, and naruto) marinated with the soup perfectly.
