It had been a while since I had ramen, and I had been hankering for some. I found one day where I wasn't busy, and walked home from work. I had never heard of it before, but I picked out a place on the way home, and Shingetsu was it.
They offered a number of chicken paitan ramen bowls, both shio and shoyu. I was deciding between the shoyu paitan and the gyokai shoyu paitan, but in the end went with the former because the staff suggested that one was richer.
As promised, the broth was quite rich. It wasn't super thick, but it was a strong shoyu with a bit of chicken flavor. The noodles were medium-thin, firm, and very hot. The chashu was served as a couple of thick slices which, like the broth, were very rich. The bowl was smaller than normal, but it was very flavorful, which left me satisfied but not bloated.
Would I Go Again?
Everything about the ramen was great, save for maybe the egg, so if I'm ever in the area again I might stop by.
Should You Go?
If you're near Sakaisuji Honmachi Station for some reason, definitely stop by.
