六感堂 (Rock’anDo Ramen)

   A random find as I was rushing off to hop on a flight back to HK a while back. But it turns out that Rock’anDo is no random joint, but pretty highly rated. A relatively new addition to the crazy competitive Ikebukuro ramen scene, My pet peeve – not all ramen has perfectly textured eggs. Doesn’t make it bad, and a lot of the top ramen-ya have eggs like this one right here main angle is a healthy style of ramen – clear MSG-free shio soup using no animal as a base (no pork, chicken etc) but gyokai-ke clams. The dish I got, the Shio Green Men had yuzu blended in, and the soup was pleasantly light and inherently drinkable. Echoes of Afuri here. The noodles are made with added Euglena, a sort of single-cell organism which lend the noodles a green colour and an interesting mochimochi texture. Toppings-wise, shiro-negi, charsiu and mitsuba (a Japanese herby vegetable similar in look to Italian parsley). Light, healthy-ish and goes down easily. What’s not to like? Worth a stop by if you’re ever in the hood.
