Garyuu | 臥龍
Style: Tori Paitan
Bowl to Crush: Tori Chashumen + Hanjuku Ajitama | 鶏チャーシュー麺 + 味玉
With 10 seats and a cozy atmosphere, Garyuu is both a ramenya and a nomiya (drinking bar) of sorts. The shop serves a nice selection of beer, shochu and sake in addition to nourishing bowls of tori-paitan ramen. It's the perfect launch pad for a night of low-key drinking and rambling in the quaint backstreets of Sangenjaya.
Master Takashima-san previously worked at the well known shop Kioritei, a typical kodawari ramen shop serving original hand-crafted ramen creations. His chicken-based soup served at Garyuu is light, slightly creamy and almost white in color – very mild and wholesome. Essential tip: be sure to order the house-made aji tamago – an immaculately prepared ramen egg with perfect consistency. The small details here are what's best.
Garyuu has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere — come with friends, hangout, enjoy your bowl, have a few drinks.
