Story & Recommendation
A seafood based ramen that brings out every bit of delicious umami flavor from its ingredients
Gangi is located a 20-minute walk from the Karasuma Subway Line’s Imadegawa Station. At this shop, you can enjoy ramen and tsukemen prepared with primarily “seafood” bases. Even amongst the ramen shops that offer seafood based soups, Gangi boasts delicious flavors that are ranked, top class. Also, although they’ve only been open since 2015, they also enjoy the favor of many passionate fans. Gangi mainly offers four types of ramen. 濃厚系/Noukoukei (rich, creamy ramen prepared with an animal-based soup stock, such as tonkotsu (pork bone) or gyukotsu (beef bone), 淡麗系/Tanreikei (a light shoyu (soy sauce) ramen prepared using only seafood-based ingredients), 節系/Bushikei (a ramen combining seafood and animal stock), and Tsukemen. However, if you asked for a recommendation, it’d tough to give one. Why? Because they are all delicious. Although, if we had to mention one, it would be the 淡麗系/Tanreikei ramen. This ramen, although prepared with seafood-based ingredients, has no pungent odors nor acridity, and instead has sweet, splendidly extracted full-bodied umami flavors. When thinking about how much time and effort went into the research and experimentation it took to complete this bowl of ramen; it almost brings a tear to our eyes. The interior of the restaurant is very bright, and features high ceilings, creating a very wide, open space. Although Gangi is located 20 minutes’ walk from the nearest station – and cannot in any way be called convenient to get to – that rarely discourages diners, as it is always bustling with regular customers.
