šKagari/
Ginza: Ramen
₯unlisted
€Data
Ginza is known for
high-end fine din-
ing. Half of the
most expensive sushi
restaurants in the
world are there, as
is a tempura shop
that costs as much
as a round trip
ticket to Japan. It
would make sense
that ramen masters
wouldn't consided
trying to make a
succesful ramen shop
in the area. But
when Kagari opened
in 2013, word quick-
ly spread. Ginza had
a gourmet ramem shop
that had normal
ramen shop prices.

Be prepared to wait.
The line on this
back-alley shop
usually requires at
least thirty min-
utes. But once you
are inside, you can
really relax in this
beautiful shop.
Clean wooden fit-
tings and staff
dressed in sharp
white jackets are a
welcome respite.
Order either the
creamy chicken pai-
tan (Paitan Yu Soba
Y950) or the robust
niboshi ramen (nibo-
shi shoyu soba
Y900). The first is
made with chicken
bones cooked over
high heat for many
hours, releasing the
collagen in the
bones. For people
who like more of a
rich soy sauce fla-
vor, the niboshi
ramen is the way to
go.

The toppings are
also worth mention-
ing at Kagari. The
seasonal vegetables
(kisetsu no yasai
Y380) match the
chicken paitan quite
well, adding
splashes of color to
the white soup. For
the niboshi ramen,
mushrooms from Kyoto
(Kyotosan Takenoko
Y250) or roast Japa-
nese beef (Kokusan
Gyu-rosu biifu Y400)
are a must.
