Asari Shio Ramen

Chiba2012-1010453

This simple ramen, made with clams in a salt based broth, is not as common in ramen shops as you might expect. We found this delicious bowl literally meters from the beach in Ichinomiya, Chiba prefecture at Kujukuri Men Dragon, a ramen shop run by a former Tokyoite turned ramen chef / surfer. the chef and surfer combination means the shop is closed when the surf is good, but when it is open, the customers pour in to fill the place. And for good reason: the Asari Shio Ramen is rich with buttery broth and the clams are sweet and fresh from the nearby Pacific Ocean.
