Ramen Museum in Shin-Yokohama

I went to the Raumen Museum in Shin-Yokohama yesterday. Not only did they have a museum explaining the history of ramen, as well as the differences between the types of noodles and flavours from different regions, but there was also two floors of ramen restaurants set in a Showa 33 (1958) themed area, where you can choose and eat ramen from different famous ramen restaurants across Japan.

IdeShoten ramen- soy sauce and miso base. Delicious!

I only managed to try two restaurants before I was too full to eat more, (their mini-bowls were not as mini as I had expected. ) but they were delicious.

Of note, one restaurant we went to had a ‘ramen fork’. I think it was probably designed for people who can’t use chopsticks, but due to the novelty of it, my friend and I decided to try it out. It actually works really well!

They were selling the forks in the souvenir shop for 840 yen. I bet it’d probably work well with other noodles and pasta too.

Sakamoto ramen- soy sauce based with chicken and leek toppings. The broth was too watery and bland for my taste, but the chicken was good.

I’d like to go again and try some of the other ramen shops too.
