[Kanagawa] Ramen Tsuchinotomi (淡麗拉麺 己巳 野毛本店): Popular Light and Delicate Ramen in Sakuragicho


π Water Ramen: Yokohama’s Culinary Masterpiece

Located in Noge, Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, lies Ramen Tsuchinotomi, a culinary gem revered for its exquisite offerings. At its core is the famed “Tanrei Shoyu Ramen,” a masterpiece that combines a delicate yet rich clear broth crafted from a blend of duck and Daisen chicken, heightened by the sharpness of soy sauce. What sets this broth apart is the use of π Water, a meticulously curated element that enhances the umami essence from duck bones, chicken bones, pork bones, whole Daisen chicken, and aromatic vegetables, all carefully regulated to extract the fullest flavor profile.

The water used to boil the noodles undergoes a purification process, ensuring ramen free from any unwanted impurities. As the noodles dance in the boiling water, they absorb its essence, resulting in a sublime texture.


You have a choice between two equally tantalizing noodle options. Will you opt for the whole wheat noodles, dense with flavor and nutrition, or perhaps the hand-kneaded flat noodles, boasting a fragrant wheat aroma and a satisfyingly chewy bite? Whichever you choose, rest assured they will meld harmoniously with the broth, creating a symphony of flavors.


The Shoyu-based ramen offers a selection of two chashu varieties as toppings: succulent duck breast and tender windmill pork shoulder. On the other hand, the salt-based ramen features duck breast and luscious Iberico pork belly, with the option to add windmill pork shoulder for the connoisseurs. Each chashu is marinated in a secret sauce, slow-cooked to perfection at low temperatures, and finished with a moist and juicy texture, particularly for the duck breast.


And if you’re craving something extra, look no further than the egg rice bowl, known affectionately as TKG. Crowned with generous servings of bonito flakes and Kujo green onions, it’s a dish that elevates comfort to an art form. A drizzle of truffle-flavored soy sauce awaits, teasing the palate and leaving a lasting impression.
