Chirimentei Ramen

On 7/20, my husband and I went to Chirimentei Ramen Restaurant in Ichigaya. Chirimentei is a chain ramen shop that allows you to get food “niku nashi” and has the added benefit of veggie gyoza.

My husband’s dish: NOT vegetarian! He had tsukemen, or dipping ramen, with a side of fried rice.

My dish isn’t originally vegetarian, but I asked for it “niku nashi” (no meat), and this is how it came. This dish is hiyajiru tsukemen, a summer-only dish that is very similar to hiyashi-chuka. The sauce is probably miso and sesame. The toppings were pickled bamboo shoots, cucumber slices, nori, half a boiled egg, and myoga.

And finally… the very delicious vegetable gyoza. These are filled with cabbage and chives, mostly.
