Konjiki Hototogisu‘s new outlet in Great World City shines the spotlight on another mollusc; the oyster. You won’t find whole ones in the ramen, but it’s worked into the broth itself for a unique briney flavour that I loved. Try the clear broth before mixing in the stronger flavoured oyster paste.

The ramen itself has a wonderfully good bite to it, attributed to the whole grain flour from Hokkaido that’s used to make it. While our non-oyster fanatics at the table still did enjoy this too, I’d say if you actively don’t enjoy oysters, this probably isn’t for you. But the good news is that they have really tasty tonkotsu ramens available too!
