Ajikura is a ramen shop along Horikawa-dori street near Omiya station. If you walk a bit north along Horikawa-dori from Shijo-dori street, there is a high school on the right. Ajikura is just north of it. The red awning with "ラーメン"(Ramen) written on it and the yellow signboard that marks its location make it feel like a typical ramen shop. However, this recommendable ramen tastes a bit different than others. What kind of ramen is it? It’s the good stuff.
This is Ajikura’s "Ajikura ramen", which I would recommend. They put chopped dried sea weed and dried bonito flakes on top of the broth, and then add "tororo-konbu"(tangle flakes). The chopped dried sea weed and "tororo-konbu" look a bit different than other toppings.
How does it taste?
The noodles are a bit firm, and their tender texture worked well in the broth. The white pork bone broth was agreeably rich. The chopped dried sea weed and "tororo-konbu" rked together wonderfully. The broth and toppings came together creating a Japanese tasting soup. It was some interesting ramen. Needless to say, it was delicious.
The shop has no counter, only tables. For the convenience of cooking, Ajikura ramen starts taking orders at noon, so take note of the hours if you want to give it a try.
