Ramen Ajinokura

Shio (Salt) ramen

Ramen Ajinokura (味の蔵 is what you will see on the sign board as there is no English) is one of my favourite ramen shops in Sapporo. There are a few branches dotted around the city. There is one in Susukino, right next to the subway station, on the ground floor, so it's really easy to find.

I always go to the branch in North 24, which is also very close to the subway station and next door to my favourite bar, Famous Door. It's the perfect place to stumble into after a night boozing. Ramen is the best drunk food.

The soup is richer and thicker than your usual kind, which surprised me initially, but like my soup curry, I like it thick. You have a choice of straight noodles or regular. I've tried both and are just as good so it is a matter of taste.

Also, Ajinokura is very reasonably priced. You can get a good bowl of delicious ramen for less than 700 yen. The cheapest one is the shio (salt) ramen. I always go for this because I'm a cheap skate and I like salty things like pork scratchings! (for you Brits). Most punters choose Miso as Miso ramen is famous in Sapporo, but don't be a sheep.....choose salt.
