Muku Ramen (mini) @ Muku in Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum
Muku was started in Germany back in 2010. It became a hit in Europe, and was invited for a run at the Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum.
The soup is a blend of Tonkotsu, chicken, katsuobushi, and konbu. Kinda heavy. The top layer soup is a light fish/chicken blend. Interesting contrast. Noodles are a blend of pizza and pasta flour, producing a dense texture that will be familiar to western palettes.
Thoroughly enjoyable bowl. Likely to be a limited run at the Ramen Museum, so check it out while you can.
Genkotsu Ramen (mini) + Goukai Ramen (mini) @ Nidaime Genkotsuya in Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum
Had some business in Shin Yokohama, which means a side trip to the Ramen Museum. Checked out two mini-bowls at Genkotsuya.
The Shoyu is the main bowl, and is a Maguro-bushi broth blended with a Tonkotsu and chicken broth. Shio is probably a similar blend of soups, with some topping variations. Noodles are made up n-house, and cut to order.
Genkotsuya was originally a Koenji based shop that ran from 1980-2007, including a branch at the Ramen Museum. After the master passed away, the Ramen Museum approaches his son about re-opening. The son agreed, and Genkotsuya re-establishes in 2011.
