Miso Matador | みそ味専門 マタドール
Style: Miso w/ Beef
Bowl to Crush: Zeitaku Noukou Miso Ramen | 贅沢濃厚味噌らぁ麺
Miso Matador is master Iwatate-san's follow-up to Matador, the wildly delicious and rightfully famous gyukotsu institution in Kita-Senju. Here, Iwatate-san makes miso ramen using a rich beef broth as the base. This combination is almost unheard of in the ramen scene, but it's masterfully realized. This guy is the undisputed lord of the gyukotsu genre in Japan. Everything he touches is delicious.
This bowl ranks among the top miso ramen offerings in Tokyo. The broth is balanced, creamy and smooth. The noodles, served firm, are sourced from Mikawaya Seimen, one of Tokyo's top noodle producers. The toppings are diverse and decadent: rare roast beef, lotus root, tomatoes, green onion, bean sprouts, and various roasted beef parts.
There are several other ramen and tsukemen options on the menu. Order anything that strikes you as appealing. You can't go wrong when you're in Iwatate-san's hands.
