Creamy and foamy paitan ramen with chicken and seafood base
Fukakusa Seimen Shokudo is a ramen restaurant a three-minute walk from Fujimori Station on Keihan Honsen Line. The head chef of the restaurant, Mr. Sasaki, started working at restaurants at the age of 18, and is a tried and tested Japanese chef. The head chef takes his experience in making Japanese food and turns that experience into a unique bowl of ramen like none other.
Everything at Fukakusa Seimen Shokudo is made from scratch: the soup, the “tare” (also known as ramen spice, usually shoyu, miso, or shio), and the noodles (many other restaurants buy their soup and noodles from a wholesaler). They take special care when making their noodles, they blend only the finest wheat flour and ground flaxseed when making their noodles, and change the blending ratio, thickness, and resting period depending on the type of ramen.
Although this restaurant only opened its doors for business three years ago, it has already grown popular thanks to its unique seafood chicken paitan ramen and special limited-time-only ramen offerings. It’s a top class restaurant even in the highly competitive area of Fushimi Chushojima.
