Tori-Soba Salt (鶏そば そると), as the name would suggest, is all about chicken and salt seasoned ramen. This ramen shop is just a 3 minute walk from Shimo-kitazawa Station.
Their top selling tori soba (chicken ramen) isn’t that salty with its shio seasoning. The chicken plays a much bigger role in the flavor. In short, the salt and chicken broth is fresh tasting and light.
For lunch on weekdays, they offer a great deal at ¥900. The tori soba comes with a side of rice with chicken, egg, or dumplings.
Taiwan Maze Soba
Only on weekdays do they also serve a Taiwan maze soba. It mimics this style of soupless ramen with a raw egg and an overall balance between savory and spicy.
Where it differs is minced chicken (instead of minced pork). This chicken is prepped in a way that’s inspired by spicy Sichuan cuisine.
Another difference – among the rainbow of vegetables is chopped eggplant that are crispy on the outside. This is Taiwan maze soba, but with an interesting chicken and eggplant twist.
Tori Mori Soba
Mori Soba is just an old-fashioned way to call tsukemen. The mori soba broth has that lovely chicken flavor like the ramen. However, there’s additional funkiness to it.
