Lamb Ramen in Tokyo: Maybe Should We Call it 'Baa-men?'
In November 2019, a new ramen shop opened in Tokyo's Jimbocho neighborhood that serves a very unique kind of ramen: Lamb ramen! It's perhaps one of the rarest ramens you'll find in Tokyo and is quite interesting (and tasty) to eat! If you're a fan of lamb meat, you've got to give it a try!
Don't be sheepish, give this lamb ramen a try!
It's quite a fragrant bowl of ramen, and lamb lovers will instantly become enchanted by the distinct scent of lamb that wafts off the soup.
The soup is infused with some wonderful spices that give subtle accents to the flavor, adding depth and intrigue. For those who love lamb, this soup is likely your dream come true.
They are perfect on their own, or delicious when mixed with some of the cilantro. The various toppings were carefully thought-out and provide the perfect balance to the lamb soup that might otherwise become overwhelming.
The deep umami of the ground lamb meat is enhanced by notes of cumin and bay leaf. A piece of okra in the middle provides an interesting textural contrast that is both visually appealing and tasty! This is a special topping unlike anything else you're likely to find atop a bowl of ramen!
