Ramen Yamaguchi: Michelin Bib Gourmand Bliss with Chicken and Roast Pork Perfection!

Nestled in Nishi-Waseda, “Ramen Yamaguchi” proudly holds its place in the prestigious Michelin Bib Gourmand. The star of the show is the delectable “Chicken Soba,” featuring a robust soy-infused broth that captures the essence of chicken. A symphony of flavors is achieved through broths crafted from Aizu Jidori, Sansui Jidori, and Kibi-dori, enriched with chicken oil and soy-based allure. Imagine succulent pork chashu, a seasoned egg, and delicate chicken wontons gracing the bowl. The noodles, with their medium thickness and elegant straightness, engage in a delightful dance with the broth. And that’s not all; the menu unfolds with tantalizing variations like Shio Tori Soba (Salted Chicken Soba) and Tori Tsukesoba (Chicken Tsukemen).

But the culinary journey doesn’t end there. Enter the scene-stealer, the Roast Pork Bowl. Envision this: pork shoulder loin, seasoned with salt koji and black pepper, expertly cooked to achieve a mouthwatering juxtaposition of a crispy exterior and a juicy interior. Crowned with egg and kaiware daikon (radish sprouts), the Roast Pork Bowl is a sumptuous masterpiece where the opulence of the roast pork dances in perfect harmony with the profound depth of the sauce.
