Ramen Gottsu らーめん ごっつ is ranked neck and neck in the top 3 Ramen shops in Nerima and its always quite busy. On a Saturday afternoon I aimed for a 2:45pm entrance (closes at 3pm) and the clientele was steady til the end.
They had all three different Ramen styles: Ramen, Tsukemen and Ma-ze Soba. Went for the top left hand corner button. Ramen 750yen!
The atmosphere was so clean and the ramen Chef younger and more fashionable then most ramen spots. The waitress/lady was so incredibly polite... thumbs up for service.
Slices of lemon peel.
The char-siu was bigger than my iPhone and had the perfect tender/firm balance. If you are not into fish stock/broth ramen then might want to stay away but I'm sure I'll find myself craving this again. A bit on the creamy vs soupy side... yum.
Suprised that noodles this thin would have such a great chewiness to it.
The block of charsiu was chopped in half then he uses a meat slicer.
There was just a great balance here... friendly service, great interior design, chef who was comfortably chatting up his regular customers and the BGM very soulful... reminded me of M-People. I'll be back to try their other items for sure!
