The truest ramen experience begins with pressing the button for your order at the ticketing machine by the entrance of the store. Every Chuka Soba Shigure ramen meal begins like that, allowing the customer to ponder over what to order, what additional toppings to include, and if there are any other customizations they desire.
This ramen-ya is one of Yokohama's prize possessions, even though it might outwardly seem like just another local eatery. The most popular dish is the shoyu ramen — for which the soy sauce comes from Shodoshima directly — because of the gentleness of the soy sauce taste and the lack of fishy aftertaste even though it's a seafood-based soup.
Even though it's a small restaurant, the turnaround time is pretty impressive and the massive queue outside goes by quickly. Everyone has an equal chance at devouring a ramen bowl from Chuka Soba Shigure.
