Today I want to take you to a small ramen place we found inside Don Quijote store in a country town near Hamamatsu called 拉麺しるし. We were staying at an onsen resort (will share this in another blog) and decided to go out and get some simple things for our stay.
As we were there during winter, a bowl of hot ramen was perfect for lunch.
The outside of the store was very nicely decorated with paintings of ramens. We can already smell the ramen from the outside! Yummm
Just like in anime and Japanese tv shows, many ramen stores have a vending machine for you to buy tickets in exchange for the food you want. It can be daunting for someone who doesn’t know Japanese but if you take a minute or two to match up the words/characters from the menu to the buttons, you can easily buy your meal tickets. Some shops will have numbers associated with the meal you want which can make things a lot easier.
Also a note, some machines have options for additional toppings like shallots, bamboo shoots, additional eggs. There are options also like extra noodles and which is usually a must for us because we are big eaters.
We ordered two ramen both with extra noodles and a serve of goyza.
For such a cold day, the two large bowls of ramen were perfect for us. I am really impressed even in such a small town with little shops, you can still find some nice food at a very reasonable price.
