Here’s what they had to say about this particular variety – “Ebisoba Ichigen is a ramen restaurant originally founded in Sapporo City, Hokkaido. Due to their very distinct taste and their success they have even expanded to Tokyo opening 2 shops in the capital city.
Ebisoba Ichigen’s unique feature and taste can be attributed to its use of shrimp broth into their soup base. The shrimp broth is delicately boiled with some of the freshest Hokkaido shrimp (including the heads!), to create this flavor which is highly sought after and truly one of a kind. This combination creates a very rich and savory broth with a hint of sweetness fro the shrimps. This box is the miso based broth perfectly combined with the shrimp flavor.
This is truly a ramen you don’t want to miss. Oftentimes some patrons believe the shrimp flavor to be too strong but the chefs have perfected the shrimp flavors in the pursuit of the perfect seafood broth.”
Wow – so this sounds really fancy – I’m enthused as I love shrimp – let’s see what we have!

Finished (click to enlarge). Added soft egg, spring onion, shichimi togarashi, kizami shoga, chashu pork, sesame seeds, and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. Holy crap this is delicious. Okay, so the noodles have an excellent chewiness and a great gauge – probably the thickest ramen I’ve had that hasn’t been considered udon. The broth has a tasty miso flavor – rich and deep. But that shrimp oil is just showy and giving; it’s like Warren Buffet at an orphanage giving. IT’s tasty – makes everything taste like an umami bomb made of prawns just was detonated in your mouth. Loved this and actually ate the whole thing. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.JAN bar code 4533446001059.
