"Baby Star Land", a shop where you can "experience" the baby star ramen, has opened in Yokohama today. This is the first attempt by Oyatsu Company, which has a "small factory" for making baby star ramen, and you can see the manufacturing process through the glass. In addition, you can eat "freshly made" baby star ramen made there. According to the website of Oyatsu Company, there are "hot water noodles" that you eat with hot water and "freshly made snacks" that you eat with toppings on "freshly made" baby star ramen. concern…!
… And when I'm curious, I go to eat the food editorial department. I went to "Baby Star Land" in a strong wind. I went in a strong wind (I said it twice because it's important)!
■ Arrived in Yokohama!
"Baby Star Land" is located on Chukagai Odori, the center of Yokohama Chinatown. About 100m after entering from the gate "Huangromon" on the west side of the main street, you will see the 2nd floor of "Yokohama Hakurankan" on your right.
When you go up the escalator, there is a crowd in front of you. It seems that the baby star character (boy) "Bay-chan" came to visit us to commemorate the opening. Did you come from Mie ...? The head office factory of Oyatsu Company is in Mie Prefecture. By the way, Bay-chan is 10 years old.
The shop is crowded with many customers. Maybe because of spring break, but there are many families on weekdays. There were also foreigners. As expected, it's Yokohama Chinatown.
I found customers eating something with a cup in one hand. "Bay-chan" is drawn on the cup. There is a line behind it! That procession is like the rumored "factory" of baby star ramen.
■ Factory discovery! I'm making it from noodles!
Oh, just a "small factory"! It seems that the noodles are made here. First, make the dough. Put the flour in the machine, mix and stretch the dough over and over again. Cut the stretched dough into noodles, steam it slowly, season it, and put it in oil. It seems that the point of this poly-poly texture is to fry. Cut the fried noodles so that they are easy to eat, and you're done.
■ Finally to the "freshly made" sales corner
Beyond the "small factory", there is a "freshly made" sales corner where you can eat freshly fried baby star ramen. I've been waiting! The aim is "hot water noodles". It's exciting. "Please give me hot noodles. Miso!" "I'm sorry, the noodles have been postponed." What is it !? According to the staff, the sales start time is undecided. It is said that it will specialize in the topping series for a while. Sorry ...
I ordered 2 items from the topping series without being disappointed here. I received the "ankake" that I was interested in and the "mayonnaise & corn" recommended by the seller's older sister. Oh, it feels good.
First of all, Ankake! With a cup, it's slightly warm. It's the real thrill of being fried. It looks very similar to the food in Nagasaki prefecture. When I tried it, the taste of the noodles was the usual baby star ramen. Soy sauce is a nice touch. The Chinese food entwined there is also very delicious. It's well seasoned, but it's not salty and goes well with the soy sauce flavor of baby star ramen. Well, this is good.
And the mayo corn recommended by your sister. Mayo x chicken ramen shouldn't be bad, and the sweetness of this freeze-dried corn is a perfect match. Certainly delicious. It tastes great as a snack. Thank you for your sister.
This shop, where the building itself is open today. It's a waste to miss the "freshly fried" hot baby star ramen that can only be tasted here! Why not add it to your sightseeing course or holiday outing plan? It's worth a visit!
