We joined the long queue to try this Ramen highly recommended. The ramen is very tasty but the shop is too small and long waiting cue line. Probably because of lunch hours.
Shoyu style ramen originaly began to be eaten in Wakayama around the old streetcar stations that were located in central Wakayama.
The soup is dark brown but tastes light and simple.
This flavor is the predominant flavor of Wakayama Chuka-soba.
-Tonkotsu Shoyu (Pork bone and Soy broth) . Tonkotsu Shoyu style soup has a rich and smooth taste, intertwined with the flavor of pork and soysauce.
