Yume wo katare - the real deal

Scharn | Oct 2, 201308:05 AM

I used to live in Tokyo where my hobby was obsessing about ramen. that's a thing over there. in fact there are quite a few monthly magazines specifically on ramen and the leading review site features rating with 5 digits. So for example the 99.537/100 shop is better than the 99.536/100 shop.

Long story short I am happy to confirm that Yume wo katare feels, smells, sounds and tastes like an actual ramen shop.

As you may or may not know there are different types of ramen: tonkotsu, tonkotsu gyokai, shio, miso to name a few. Yume wo katare specializes in a very specific kind of ramen pioneered by a Japanese chain called Jiroh. That ramen is basically a fatty pork and soy sauce based broth with veggies, garlic and noodles. Personally I like other kinds of ramen more, but for what it's worth the stuff yume wo katare churns out is very close to the Japanese ideal of this style of ramen and you got to respect that.
