Hayashi is a single counter run by a husband-wife team, open only for 4 lunch hours a day.
A tonkotsu-gyokai blend, in a beautiful golden hue.
|Ajitama ramen (900yen)|
Some bowls taste too fishy, others too porky. Hayashi's bowl is refined, with the pork blended smoothly with the smoky dashi, and just a little bit of yuzu citrus on top for zest.
Definitely get the egg. It's one of the best you'll ever have.
Sometimes perfection needs few words. Take a weekday off and go to Hayashi. You'll remember it.
Apparently if you tell the shopkeep to make the bowl "shio aji," they'll give you a shio version of their ramen instead. I will be back.
