Normally I would order the Tonkotsu (pork-bone broth) ramen. Decided to order this fish-based ramen instead - Niigata Shoyu Ramen (新潟醤油らーめん) with 2 slices of Aburi Chashu, bamboo shoot, Flavoured Soft-Boiled Egg, Spinach and Nori sitting in this clear fish-based broth made by boiling chicken, pork, mushrooms and two premium niboshi (or dried sardines) for over 6 hours. The broth was rich, flavourful and intense. Something that I noticed was the ramen was served in a metallic bowl. Apparently it’s some special “keep warm” bowl produced in Tsubamesanjyo, Niigata. Interesting. Anyway, dinner was good..!
