Strike Ken (Osaka-shi, Kita-ku)

Sutoraiku Ken

Hiyashi ramen: 17 / 20

This ramen restaurant is quite famous for its special clam-based ramen, but also features a more classical, shoyu-based ramen. This is the one I ordered - but in its summer, cold version.

Broth: A thick, wonderful fishy broth cooled with ice cubes.

Noodles: Thin, well cooked.

Meat: A cold, lean and firm slice of chashu with a mild taste.

Toppings: Some soft menma, ginger, nori, microgreens, white negi and viscuous seaweed. You also get a side-dish of grated daikon (radish).

The broth was a delight and the profusion of toppings gave a wonderful variety of flavors - I strongly recommend this dish! Add to this a very cool atmosphere, with the high ceiling, manga library, signed shikishi, and you get all ingredients for a great place. I'll have to come back to try their clam-based ramen.
