Recreate the Taste of Each Period
The shop’s specialty menu Nendai-betsu Shio Ramen is made very carefully in order to recreate the taste of ramen in each period. To make ramen soup, ingredients such as pork and chicken bones, special seaweed called “gagome”, caught in the sea of Hakodate are used. For Nendai-betsu Shio Ramen, each period uses different ingredients for soup. Even the thickness, chewy texture, and the shape of noodles of each period is well recreated.
The 80’s is the Most Popular
Among their specialty menu Nendai-betsu Shio Ramen, Nendai-betsu Shio Ramen of the 80’s (680 yen) is the most popular one. The distinctive feature of this ramen is simple but rich taste of soup made from chicken bones, potherbs and seaweed “gagome,” and chewy, thin, and wavy noodles. Recommended to add the topping of fried leek!

Another popular menu is Kaisen Koku-Shio Ramen (1,050 yen) that is made with a lot of fresh seafood caught in Hakodate. The ramen with a hint of smell of the sea is topped with huge crab claw, thick scallop fried in butter and other toppings original to Hakodate. It looks so gorgeous!
