Shoki Ramen House

After Temple Coffee we decided to eat here for lunch. This is literally someone’s old house. It is very cozy. We both ordered the Chashu ramen with some shitaki mushrooms.

The ramen noodles were good, but the broth was just perfect. They say the sign of a good cook is one who can make a great soup. The broth had a nice velvety consistency, from what I am assuming is gelatin from the long simmer of bones, as well as the layers of vegetables. You can tell this broth is not from a powder or a can. Usually I do not drink broth in any kind of noodle soup, but my partner was like, “So you like the broth eh? You usually never drink the broth."

The pork was tender with just enough fat to add flavor and the mushrooms added nice contrast of texture and flavor.
