Shinise Ramen Kamitora

It had been a while since I'd been to a Kamitora, but the sign outside that they were doing a collaboration with Junk Story was enough to drag me in. I walked in and ordered the JUNK Shoyu.

神虎に行くのが久しぶりでしたけど、Junk Storyとのコラボを見た瞬間に、行かなあかんと思いました。入ってみて、JUNK醤油をオーダーしました。

The Bowl
I normally associate Junk Story with clean shio ramen, but this was a big fatty, garlicky mess. The combination of garlic and pork back fat kept the ramen juicy, and tasting a bit like jiro-kei ramen. The noodles kept the best flavors of the broth, leaving the harsher points and back fat behind. The chashu was not as stellar, but I was glad to have tried the bowl overall, and sad that this was a limited time deal.

Junk Storyと聞いたらすっきりとした塩ラーメンのイメージがしていますけど、このラーメンは脂っぽくてニンニク臭かったです。ニンニクと背油でラーメンの味が強くて、若干次郎系に似ていました。麺はスープの味のいい部分を吸収しました。チャーシューはちょっと薄かったですけど、全体的に美味しくて、また食べられないのがちょっと残念です。

Would I Go Again?

Should You Go?
