This Udagawacho hotspot uses a rich, delicious gyokai tonkotsu broth made from simmering chicken, pork and seafood. The rich light-brown soup is packed with flavour and pairs well with the straight and firm noodles. The basic ramen starts at just ¥900, but for ¥1,200 you’ll get a bowl with all the trimmings including lightly seared chashu pork, menma bamboo shoots, a flavoured egg and green onions.
To give your ramen an extra kick, we recommend adding a bit of yuzu or kuro shichimi seasoning powder to the bowl. Spicy ramen (¥950) as well as tsukemen – ramen you dip in a separate broth (¥1,000) – are also on the menu. For the ultimate meal, pair your noodles with one of the many Japanese craft beers on tap, like the ever-popular Shiga Kogen. Be sure to save room for the tamago kake gohan (rice topped with a raw egg), which is free for everyone who orders a bowl of ramen.
