Recommended bowl: OG Takayama roots

This shop has roots stretching back to the original Takayama ramen in Takayama, Gifu prefecture. Masago Soba in Nagoya is officially, 'Norenwake,' meaning the master trained at the OG shop in Takayama and has permission to use the original recipe. Family run and now open for over 48 years, this is authentic Takayama-style shoyu ramen with housemade noodles. Chicken-based soup, with assari (light) shoyu served with thin curly noodles. The special point is that the soup and tare are combined in the large stockpot and simmered together, unlike most ramen in which the soup and tare are added to the bowl individually just before serving. Most customers order the chashumen, served with delectable slices of pork belly chashu. The shoyu soup has a wonderful punch. Somewhat of an old school hidden gem. Recommended.
