Real Japanese Ramen

Postby elektronisk » 10 Dec 2011, 00:08

It is that time of year again and in all my years here I still can't find a place with real Japanese ramen. Please, somebody, make my day and tell me where it can be found.

I'm not into Japanese food. I don't know what 'real' is. There's a la1mian4 place called yi1wan3la1mian4 in the 101 court; bottom of the escalator from the office lobby. I'd be interested in hearing what people who know what 'real' and quality ramen is think of that joint, for my edumacation.

The "real" if you will is what you would find when traveling around Japan. Little stores/shops similar to what we have here selling Beef Noodles. The Taiwanese version of ramen is ok but not at all like or as good as in Japan. Not even close to Japanese ramen (there are udon places here that come close though). The ramen noodles here are different and the soup is different. In Japan the chef stands at the counter in front of you like a teppanyaki chef and makes everything upon order. If you haven't had real Japanese ramen you owe it to have some before you die. Some of the best soup in the world.


And I'm guessing you need to watch Tampopo. :wink:

That area has the best and only real Japanese food in Taipei. But only really good sushi/sashimi that I've found, that is why I'm asking. Those places you need to drop 5,000 just for drinks and appetizers. Do you care to join me and we'll wander around the area? I'm up for that with a buddy. We can just walk around and ask while having a few drinks. OK?

I think there is a place in the Yongkang Street area...it seemed better than average and was more expensive and they claimed to be very legit...but I'm not sure what real Japanese ramen is.

In an alley between Yongkang Street and Lishui Street is a marvelous place called "Rakumen-ya" (address: 7, Alley 10, Yongkang Street; telephone: 02-2395-1787). It's the real deal.
