Most of the ramen shops I visit are in Osaka, but I do every once in a while try to make a trip. Two of Hyogo's famous ramen shops are seafood-specialty shops each called Nagomi, one the original and one run by a disciple of the first one. I made the trip to Mukonoso Amagasaki to try the second shop, and I ordered the Niboshi Black.


The Bowl
The soup was cloudy and insistingly brown, both appearing and tasting strongly of the dried fish that's part of the broth. The base was shoyu, though, and that rounded out the soup in a way that preserved the seafood flavor, but made it drinkable the whole way through. The noodles were short and medium-thick, a good form to drink up the soup. And if that wasn't enough, there were a couple of baguette pieces for an alternate interesting way to take in the broth. The chashu, too, was delicately balanced: they came in thin slices with just the right amount of chew, but still plenty of juice.


Would I Go Again?
Yes, just looking for an excuse to go that far and wait on line.


Should You Go?
