Fukuki is yet another ramen shop I found on Ramen DB. It’s such a great website for finding good places to eat ramen. We went there in late January before visiting Kyu Shiba Rikyu Garden in Hamamatsucho.
It’s a nice clean shop with a warm atmosphere. It wasn’t busy, which is surprising for a Sunday afternoon in Tokyo.
I ordered kurofuku, the shop’s specialty. Toppings included pork, spinach, leeks, two pieces of nori, a boiled egg and some sesame seeds.
Fukuki specialises in tonkotsu shoyu ramen. The broth had a very strong smell and was very flavourful. The colour was fairly dark, hence the name “kurofuku”, or black fuku. It was somewhat oily, but not heavy.
I ordered my noodles “katame” (firm). They were thick and wavy.
There were two types of pork. They were both very tender and tasted really nice.
I liked this shop. There are so many place to eat in Hamamatsucho, so I’d like to check out some of the other shops in the area next time I’m there. But Fukuki is worth visiting.
