I originally wanted to go to this Youki because it is consistently ranked in the Hiroshima top 5. But since that one is only open at night and I was looking for lunch, I decided to try the Youki in Yokogawa that is supposedly run by another family member. So I arrived at the peak of lunch to a packed house--always a good sign! With only three things on the menu (ramen, rice ball, and beer), this was my kind of ramen house. The ramen was unusually light for a Hiroshima-style chuuka soba that usually screams shoyu, but the flavor was flat-out fantastic. And the noodles...wow! I normally don't notice the actual flavor of noodles when I eat ramen, but this homemade batch was very different. The clean, salty flavor of the noodles noticeably stood out and its inherent sliminess was remarkably good in a unique sort of way. If I hadn't eaten an hour earlier, I could have easily ordered another bowl!
From Hiroshima Station take the Sanyō line one station down to Yokogawa and it's about a 6-minute walk from there. Fortunately, I had a friend drive me there so I won't be able to tell you the exact route. They are open from 11:30am to 2:30pm and from 4:30pm to 9pm and closed on Sundays.
