This place is well known for its two kinds of ramen with thick whitish chicken-bone soup and store-made noodles. 

They are Tori Shiro and Tori Kuro.

Tori Shiro (Photo above) is a bit salty, thick chicken-bone soup ramen.

Comparing with Tori Kuro, this has lighter taste.

Tori Kuro (Photo above) has thick and dense chicken soup with soy sauce flavor

Both soup are thick and smooth. They go very well with the noodle.

Please do not mind to slurp when you have ramen. That’s the best way of enjoying noodle and soup the Japanese way.

Roasted pork fillet and eggs are offered enhance the all round taste. Sliced burdock fry is on top of the soup. Its crunchiness and crispiness add another layer to the flavor.

You shall order additional toppings, like eggs, bamboo shoots and roasted pork fillet, and more noodles. Please ask the staff when you order your ramen.


Try Another Specialty!

Please don’t just finish your ramen and go back home. Try the side menus too.

This restaurant has another specialty.

Among the side menu, the owner recommends me the specialty.


It is the “Super Fresh Chicken Yukhoe Don” (Photo below)

This is seasoned partly cooked chicken with a raw egg on steamed rice.

Yukhoe is a Korean dish usually made with raw beef but this restaurant uses chicken instead.

They use chicken which is dressed on the morning. They use super fresh chicken and eggs so please don’t worry.

They are seasoned with sesame oil and special sauce at last before serving.

Even when you finished a bowl of ramen, you still can finish this bowl of  delicacy with the hovering sesame scent.
