Ramen CiQUE, Suginami-ku, Asagaya, Tokyo, Japan, 166-0004.
Wakaranai … Translates to I don’t know. But here’s what I do know, I caught a plane, then took a train and ended up in Asagaya Tokyo. Joyously eating the best ramen I’ve ever had at Ramen CiQUE.
Ramen CiQUE sits in an old house on a suburban street. However the blink of an eye could be the difference between finding the venue and never knowing what you missed.
The main room is split into a galley kitchen, a lounge room for those in the queue for food and a long bar for diners to pull up a stool and eat at. I also just loved the atmosphere of this little place and it was nice to be amongst fellow ramen lovers.
Watching the chef make the broth was a learning experience as there were so many elements. And, the shifting of liquid from one pan to another was a definite art. At the end, just before serving, he added pan scrapings with gave the broth a sheen.
We had decided to try this particular place because they make Chicken Broth which is incredibly hard to get in Japan. And, this soup was so delicious I couldn’t get over how fabulous it tasted and the house made noodles, wow!
Chilled water and the condiments of minced garlic, chilli powder and horseradish were a nice gesture.
A ten minute train journey from Shinjuku to Asagaya and then a ten minute walk to Ramen CiQUE and you’re there.
