JAPANESE FOOD RECOMMENDATION★Ramen! Ramen! Ramen! Kagoshima Ramen!

Kyushu Food 2017.07.04
As many may have noticed, Japanese ramen is starting to take over the food world as we know it. Thank goodness for that too, because ramen is a love relationship like none other. The question is, what's your favorite kind of ramen? Salt (shio)? Soy sauce (shoyu)? Miso? Or is it pork base (tonkotsu)? We understand it can be hard to pick, but let us introduce you to a kind of ramen you have yet to experience!

The Best Thing for You Ramen Lovers!

Zabon Ramen
The ramen shop Zabon Ramen is based in Kagoshima, which is nicknamed the "Naples of the Eastern World" and is one of the biggest prefectures in the Kyushu Island. Kyushu is FAMOUS for its pork-based (tonkotsu) ramen, and is home to some of our favorite ramen shops (like Ippudo Ramen and Ichiran).
But what makes Zabon Ramen so special? That's easy, it's the fact that they use pig head to make their broth rather than bones like most shops🐷🍜

Experiencing the local cuisine and surrounding yourself with friendly people is a great choice. We know Japanese people are really nice, but Kyushu people in particular are some of the nicest and most friendly people you will ever meet! The people at Zabon Ramen are of no exception. You pay for the meal in advanced, which allows you to just sit, relax, and take everything in. Pork itself gives off the image of being greasy, oily, and heavy, but Zabon Ramen's ramen stays true to the tonkotsu taste without leaving you feeling gross afterwards. Zabon Ramen arranges their ramen differently, putting all the goods at the bottom of the bowl. The idea is to mix the bowl of the white tonkotsu broth with all its ingredients. You'll be surprised how different things taste when it has been soaking at the bottom.
