Ramen Shodai らーめん初代
Ramen Shodai is ranked number 1 ramen shop in Otaru! We didn't plan on dining at this ramen shop but the aroma was too hard to resist as we walked by! It smelled so good, we had to try it 2 hours before our dinner reservation elsewhere.
Hokkaido ramen is known for their miso base, super rich, creamy and not too heavy. The noodles are thicker than Hakata style ramen so it's nice and chewy. We wanted to try the special white broth shoyu ramen, they only sell 30 bowls a day but they're already sold out by 5pm. We ordered the miso and shoyu ramen and it certainly didn't disappoint! It's the first Hokkaido ramen we had and it's making us fall in love with Hokkaido style! They even sell their own packaged instant ramen by the cashier so we had to buy a few back to Toronto! Be warned, if you buy it, it'll make you miss Hokkaido ramen!
