Yokohama Iekei Style began as a single ramen restaurant in Yokohama 横浜 City Kanagawa 神奈川 Prefecture next to Tokyo a long time ago. Iekei ramen is one of Yokohama's local culinary delicacies.

Specialties of Yokohama Iekei Style Ramen

  • Thick and a little firm noodles
  • Rich and creamy broth: Tonkotsu (pork bone), chicken oil and soy sauce flavors
  • Topped with spinach, Chashu (Slice of stewed / roast pork belly), egg (or quail egg), Nori (Pressed, dried seaweed = Sea vegetable sheet)
  • Most Yokohama Iekei ramen restaurants allow you to customize the broth, the boiling time of the noodles and the quantity of fat / oil when you order (or hand the meal ticket to the staff).
  • In addition, after your ramen is prepared and delivered, you can add your favorite spices from the many choices available for free on the counter or table.

3 kinds of ramen at ICHIKAKUYA are described below.
These ramen dishes have a uniquely mellow, rich and creamy flavor. It is so unforgettable that you probably won't want to leave any broth in the bowl.

Soy Sauce Ramen (Classic Ramen)

ICHIKAKUYA's classic ramen is simply named RAMEN ラーメン.
It is based on a tonkotsu (pork bone) and soy sauce broth.
It includes a quail egg, spinach, nori and chashu.

This ramen restaurant usually prepares garlic paste and chopped onions on the tables, but sometimes they have them in a refrigerator to keep them fresh in the summer or if there are no customers.
If you want them, don't hesitate to ask.

To be honest.
I prefer the soy sauce (classic) ramen to the salt one.

Their salt ramen tates very creamy like milk. It is not my favorite broth.
