Join the TOKYO EXTRA team with Brian, an international ramen expert, as he travels throughout Tokyo seeking the most tasty and extreme ramen choices. Brian shares his ramen selections with taste testers including Rina and Rena from AKB48.
In this video, Rena and Brian try out a special miso ramen at “Matador” in Kitasenju.
The shop’s soup is made with beef bones and the shop’s most popular dish is the Zeitak Noko Miso Ramen, which gets its rich flavour from Saikyo miso mixed in with the special broth.
The flat noodles hold the flavour perfectly, with everything made even better by the toppings: lotus root, bean sprouts and flavoured egg, with a finishing touch of two different kinds of beef char siew.
Diners can even add a final touch of fried garlic chips, subtly changing the powerful flavors of the soup.
