Things to prepare before going to Ramen Jiro

You will probably find many urban myth and unique rules about Ramen Jiro on the internet.

So if you go for the first time,
you might wonder “Do I need to prepare anything beforehand?”

It is a ramen shop in the end, so I want you to go relaxed
and without anything to bring.

But with Ramen Jiro, you should prepare yourself with two of the things listed below.

 

That is

・Breath care mints
・Black oolong tea

 

It is more of a manner as a person rather than manner of Jiro,
so I recommend you to buy them before you go.

Breath care mints

At Jiro, garlic can be added as extra topping and it is not too much to say that garlic makes the taste of the ramen greater.

You can tell by how the first thing a staff asks you after the bowl is ready is, if you want any garlic.
So you can see the importance of the garlic.

* When you visit Jiro, please try to have it with garlic…

And,

garlic has quite strong taste to begin with,
but at Jiro, they put in so much garlic to the point you still smell like garlic the day after.

So if you have a plan to meet someone after eating or the day after,
you should eat some kind of breath care mint right after you leave the shop.

If you have a date or work the day after, it is a must!

 

If you go without any breath care, others will definitely stay clear of you…

 

After that to have more effect, you should have some milk or green tea.
They say it works.

Breath care mints

Milk or green tea

 

This combination should reduce the garlic smell even better.
Also, to eliminate the garlic component out of your system,

 

・Drink lots of water and go to toilet a lot
・Sweat a lot by taking a warm bath
・Drink lots of water and do half body bathing

 

By doing the above, your body will have higher metabolism
and any garlic essence left in your body will be discharged.

Ok, then next.

I will explain another essential for visiting Jiro.

Black Oolong tea

 

Oolong tea contains a substance called oolong tea polyphenol.
Black oolong tea contains polyphenol called “Oolong Tea Polymerized Polyphenol”.

Oolong tea polymerized polyphenol is said to have one of the highest fat suppression effect among the oolong tea polyphenols and the polyphenol is supposed to suppress the absorption of the fat.

This effect is the reason why oolong teas and black oolong tea both have dieting effect.

So the black oolong tea has the highest fat suppression effect within the oolong teas.

Even the small ramen at Jiro has approx. 1500 kcal and the large portion has approx. 2000 kcal. So you should expect a quite enough of fat intake…

(Please don’t tell me then don’t eat!…)

 

The ramen has very high calories and a lot of fat
so I recommend the black oolong tea to excel the fat suppression effect.

At many of the Ramen Jiro shops, they have a vending machine for beverages.

And Jiro even recommend the black oolong tea by selling them there.

Especially for those who likes to drink all the soup,

intake of chemical ingredients, fat, and salt is unavoidable so you should drink the tea.

 

Some shops even sell them inside the shop
so you should check it out before you go.

But some don’t have it at the shop nor has the vending machine,

so purchasing beforehand would be the wise idea.

Now, you are well prepared so let’s go to the Jiro shop!!

 

BUT before that there is the unique manners and rules that’s you should know.
I will explain about that next.
