One of our favorite tonkotsu ramen shops opened up in Akihabara!
There are a variety of great ramen shops and flavors here in Japan.
Black Garlic Oil Tonkotsu Ramen
Similar to the regular tonkotsu ramen but the garlic oil adds a little extra punch
giving the ramen a new and unique flavor.
Don't let the word "garlic" put you off!
The taste is surprisingly subtle and balances really well with the pork broth.
If we're in the mood for tonkotsu ramen,
this is our go to!
Spicy Miso Chashu Ramen
For those that are more in a "miso ramen" mood,
the karamiso (spicy miso) ramen is the way to go.
There is so much flavor inside a single bowl,
it's unlike any other bowl or miso ramen we've had thus far.
Some miso ramen can leave you with a really oily feeling
but for some reason, the spicy miso ramen here doesn't do that.
Plus the hint of spice is a really nice touch!
We didn't do it this time,
but adding boiled eggs to miso ramen is so good!
So if you get the spicy miso ramen we TOTALLY recommend you add one!
All you need to do is ask for one! Show off your Japanese skills and say,"Kaidama kudasai", and you're ready to go!!
The person taking the order will ask you how you would like your ramen, so this time we tried the firmest type they had!!
If you really liked the last batch of noodles, you're of course more than welcome to have the same, but it's also fun to switch it up and play around!
When people think about going to go get tonkotsu ramen, normally they think of Ippudo and Ichiran.
Which are great places!!
We love eating there too, but we wanted to mention another highly recommended tonkotsu ramen shop that is just as good and functional for foreigners.
That place is called Hakata Furyu!!!
