Recommended bowl: OG IEKEI roots

This is the second branch of the legendary shop Sugitaya located in Shin-Sugita, Yokohama. As many know, Sugitaya, formally known as Yoshimuraya, is the birthplace of Yokohama IEKEI ramen. When Yoshimuraya moved to its current location, Master Tsumura-san was the first Sugitaya disciple given permission to launch his own shop. Tsumura-san hails from Chiba and graduated from prestigious Tokyo University before working in ramen shops. He later decided to return to his hometown to launch the first spinoff of the legendary Yoshimuraya. The bowls are IEKEI standard issue: Tonkotsu-shoyu soup with chicken; noodles supplied by the one and only Sakai Seimen, the exclusive supplier of all IEKEI shops that get official approval from Yoshimuraya. For IEKEI style ramen, this is about as good as it gets.
