Bigiya (麺処 びぎ屋) stands tall among ramen shops in Gakugei Daigaku. Their Shizuoka-inspired shoyu ramen is a flavorful, complex blend of chicken and multiple varieties of fish.
Deep-Flavored Shoyu Ramen
Their shoyu ramen carries a deep flavor that starts with a blend of Shizuoka soy sauces, both sweet and salty.
The soup is comprised of premium Daisan and Gotenji area chicken, pork bones, sardine, horse mackerel and even shiitake niboshi, katsuobushi, sababushi, and 3 types of kelp (including the prized Rishiri kelp).
For such a long list of ingredients, the broth has a light and well-balanced taste, with the fish flavors coming out the most.
The thin noodles are made from local wheat and are fantastic.
But the meat (both chicken and pork) toppings stand out most after the broth. They’re excellently soft and succulent. The chicken (shoulder) chashu in particular is not only marinated, but oven-roasted.
The great thing about ramen in Gakugei Daigaku is you normally don’t have to wait that long. Bigiya is no different. You can enjoy one of Tokyo’s best shoyu ramen without a crazy wait.
