Many times people will say they feel hesitant to go in as Jiro has confusing call outs and the staffs are not kind about not knowing the callouts.

The call outs (magic words)

At Ramen Jiro, when the noodles are ready,

They will ask either “do you want garlic?” or, “who ordered large?” or “who ordered small?”

This means what do you want to do about the toppings.

So you should call out what type and size of the toppings you want.

 

There are 4 basic toppings:

Yasai (Vegetable): more vegetables?
Ninnniku (garlic): more garlic?
Abura (fat): extra fat
Karame (saltier): make the taste of soup thicker?

 

If they ask you when the ramen is ready,

tell them the toppings you want.

 

Example 1)

Staff: “For the one will small, garlic (what about toppings)?”

Customer: “Garlic and vegetable… so on”

 

Example 2)

Staff: “Ok, next person (what about toppings)?

Customer: “No garlic, mashi vegetables, fat and salty”

 

But if you want more of the toppings:

Mashi (little bit more than the regular amount)
Mashi-mashi (double the amount)
Chomoranma (another name for Mount Everest: triple the amount)

 

The amounts differ by the shop.
Sometimes you get more than what you expected so be careful.

If you have visited the shop for the first time check the volume by looking at other people’s bowls.

That will be the best way to decide your amount.

 

For the first timer:

“Do you want extra garlic and other toppings?”

Tell them “regular” or just say “please”.

 

You will be ok.

 

You will know the standard for the amount at the particular shop when you go once.
So try ordering extra toppings after the second time.

* If you go with someone who knows the shop, please get an advice.

 

The staff might ask you for the call out suddenly,
so pay very attention to then at all times.

If you want extra topping with the regular amount, you just name what you want such as vegetable, garlic, fat, or saltier.
