春木屋 outside
Ogikubo was once called the ramen center of Tokyo because of two famous shops that any ramen freak knows. One of them closed several years ago which actually was my favorite ramen shop, but the one that is still around HARUKIYA has survived for over 60 years and is still one of busiest ramen shops with people waiting in line all the time. It was also one of the ramen shops that was featured on the famous ramen movie of the 80's, Tanpopo.

Harukiya opened in 1949. The late owner/chef Imamura was originally a soba chef, but since it was right after World War II, he couldn't get a hold of good buckwheat only regular floor. So he decided to open a ramen shop instead without any proper training.

春木屋 中華そば
Harukiya's ramen is a shoyu ramen (soy sauce ramen) and from noodles to menma (bamboo shoot) its all homemade. It is one of the first ramen shops to use niboshi (dried sardines) for its broth. He got the idea of using niboshi from soba broth. The ramen is very simple and has authentic Tokyo style toppings. Spring onions, menma, chashu (boiled pork) and nori (dried seaweed). But the soup isn't since niboshi is not used for most of the authentic Tokyo style ramen broths. Regular ramen is called CHUKASOBA at Harukiya for 800 yen.

Noodles are rather thick, but not extra thick and are wrinkled by hand.

Their menma is my favorite of all the ramen shops and I always order extra.

Harukiya was my late parents favorite ramen shop and since its been open for over 60 yrs many people like me have come here to eat with their parents or family. Since I don't live near by anymore I don't get to go here as much as I want to, but it will always be one of my favorite ramen shops with many memories.
