You can have “Torigara-Baitan Sio(salt) ramen” and “Taiwan soupless noodle” in this ramen restaurant
Both are deliciousm,,,, you might not be able to choose one.

First, if you need light one, “Torigara-Baitan Sio(salt) ramen” would be better.
Though It’s very mild taste, you can feel strong chicken taste in soup.

The char-siu is not pork, but chicken, and noodles are a little bit thin one.

Next, let me introduce to you “Taiwan soupless noodle”.

At first, please mix the egg and other toppings into whole of noodles.
After you mixed, the souse and toppings coat the noodles and very tasty!
The egg makes the bowl mild although the souse is a little spicy.

In addition, there are some spice on thee table; lemon pepper, curry powder, and veneger.
You can add these spices freely.

The flow to change the taste with these free spices is called “Aji Hen” (味(Aji) 変(Hen): ‘Aji’ means ‘taste’, ‘Hen’ means ‘to change’).

This ramen restaurant is famous with their rich and thick soup.
There is always a line.
You’ll never enter this restaurant without be in a line at anytime.

When you have a sou, you might feel that it is more like “eating” rather than “drinking”.
It is very rich, but it is not too much heavy.
Once you eat, it is rich enough to be addictive.

Noodles, its texture is a little bit hard.
Sometimes it is too tangled with the noodles when the soup is thick, but there seems to be properly considered.
Soup and noodles are good for you, so rich noodles, but you can have it tight until the end.

Please eat “rice noodles” which makes you addictive once you eat it!
