The best part of the Raumen Musuem is that you can eat at one (or many) of the 9 ramen shops and then take ’em home with you. That’s exactly what I did after trying Chuuka Soba Ichiriki for the first time last month–a classic ekimae yatai ramen.
The contents include:
- 3 packs of noodles.
- 3 pouches of soup.
Now I just need to find 2 friends.
The soup is nearly the same as I remember–a pungent pepper paradise. A nice juicy piece of chashu would go perfect with this ramen. It’s too bad it didn’t come with any.
The noodles were somewhat disappointing and more transparent than the real stuff. They still tasted okay, but I was hoping for more of that chewy texture that defines chuuka soba.
I couldn’t find 2 friends so it looks like I’ll be having 2nds and 3rds. And in the words of my former newly-defunct bank…WhooHoo!
