“Shio (Salt) Ramen”
This ramen bowl is the oldest bowl among all other food menus in this restaurant! It has white tonkotsu soup that is so satisfying to the very end. Connoting a feminine touch to the ramen bowl, they added red pickled plum which signifies a woman wearing a red lipstick. Such an interesting fact!
Their miso spicy ramen is also highly recommended!
Recommended for solo diners, with a friend or co-worker, and casual dating is also possible.
