Today we will talk a bit about Shio Ramen. Shio is Japanese for “Salt”. The kanji for shio is 塩. Which means this is salt ramen! This type of ramen is actually the first flavor to be used when ramen was first invented!
Shio ramen is typically a lighter flavor of ramen compared to it’s Shoyu brother or other flavors. It allows you to taste the broth base of the ramen more. While there are many variations of how ramen is made, we will talk about Yaguchiya’s Shio ramen.
Our Shio ramen uses our Iekei style broth, which is made up of chicken and pork. We add Shio flavor to this broth along side with our egg noodles, It’s then topped with spinach, seaweed, and 2 pieces of chashu. Even better when you order extra toppings, it’s perfect with corn and our seasoned egg!
