I visited a popular ramen noodle shop “Kuroiwa Ramen”. Speaking of ramen noodle, many people would think about the shop!
Ramen Noodle Restaurant at Tenmonkan
I finally came here to enjoy its delicious ramen noodle of Kuroiwa Ramen! The atmosphere of restaurant is that of Showa Era, or 30-40 years before.
Usually many people will have to be in line before they eat the ramen noodle at lunch time. But I avoided the busy time and came here at 15:00. I was very lucky to find that there were only 5 guests including me!
You have to buy a ticket before you enjoy eating noodles, etc. You can choose following noodles.
|Miso ramen (miso means fermented soy beans)||880 yen|
|Chashu ramen (Chashu means pork)||880円|
Other menu : 5 pieces of “Gyoza” (chinese dumplings) is 380 yen, fried rice (680 yen).
After thinking a while, I chose “Chashu ramen” because it included more pork slices than normal one and I wanted to eat pork at that time.
I passed a ticket of Chashu ramen to staff and waited for the arrival of ramen noodle while enjoying eating pickles of Japanese pickles of above picture. (Note: unlike other prefectures, most of Kagoshima’s ramen shops serve pickles for free of charge).
My lovely chashu noodle finally came! I curbed my appetite and took some photos before eating it.
6 slices of chashu, green onions and sprouts are on top of noodles.
I took a video of the noodle so that you can have a better understanding of the noodle.
Chashu is very soft and filled with mild soy source tastes. Soup is pork broth but not oily. I think that many people would love the noodle!
Noodle itself is typical thick noodle of Kagoshima. I found the noodle chewy and delicious!
