Ramen Mogi (ラーメン茂木) ticks all the boxes. It’s family run and has a simple interior. Most importantly though, it serves huge bowls of meaty dumpling ramen.
Surprisingly Richer Broth at Ramen Mogi
The most basic ramen starts at an affordable ¥650. It has a classic appearance. But under those classic toppings lies a mischievous, hard-hitting soup.
The soup is is pork bones, chicken bones, onions and other vegetables. It’s the pork bone usage that stands out – this is a thick and rich soup.
Order some takana (pickled and spicy mustard seeds) and you’ll be happy you did. The takana do a great job of cutting through the rich soup and adding a little dose of heat.
Dumplings, Chashu to Die For
The dumplings at Ramen Mogi are other-worldly. They’re thick on the outside and juicy on the inside. There’s nothing worse than dumplings with little meat in them. This is not the case here.
The pork belly slices are fatty and beautifully seasoned. They melt in your mouth like ice cream on a hot summer day.
