KITAKATA | Kitakata is a town that’s famous for its ramen, with over 130 stores offering up bowls of the good stuff. Despite being a small town, Kitakata actually has the highest per-capita number of ramen establishments in Japan. Abe Shokudō is one of the many places serving up tasty bowls of Kitakata’s famous ramen, which differs from the more commonly encountered ramen varieties in several ways.

The broth beings life as soy-sauce soup, with Niboshi (sardines), tonkotsu (pig bones) and sometimes chicken and vegetables added in and boiled to make the stock. Noodles are then added, and the dish is topped with chashu (thinly sliced barbeque pork), spring onions, fermented bamboo shoots, and sometimes naruto (cured fish cake).

Unlike most ramen, Kitakata ramen uses thick, wavy, noodles that glide down your throat due to the fact that they are takasuimen, which means that a higher percentage of water is added to the flour.

The end result is a delicious, flavoursome bowl of goodness that will satisfy any traveller who passes through Abe Shokudō’s doors. Even better, the people of Kitakata love eating ramen any time of the day, which means you can even get a bowl of breakfast ramen if your stomach so desires. We can’t think of a better way to start off a day in Kitakata.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
