Botan Description

Botan is a charming restaurant located in Otsuka, Tokyo, specializing in the delectable cuisine of Hakata Nagahama ramen. This cozy eatery offers a unique dining experience that sets it apart from other establishments in the area.

The star of the menu at Botan is their signature Hakata Nagahama ramen. This mouthwatering dish features thin, straight noodles served in a rich and flavorful tonkotsu (pork bone) broth. Topped with tender slices of chashu (braised pork), green onions, and a perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg, this ramen is a true delight for the senses. The broth is simmered for hours to achieve its creamy consistency and depth of flavor, making each spoonful a comforting and satisfying experience.

In addition to their exceptional ramen, Botan also offers a variety of other dishes to tantalize your taste buds. From crispy and savory gyoza (dumplings) to flavorful side dishes like karaage (Japanese fried chicken) and takoyaki (octopus balls), there is something for everyone to enjoy. The restaurant's cozy and inviting atmosphere, with its traditional Japanese decor and friendly staff, creates the perfect setting for a memorable dining experience. Whether you're a ramen aficionado or simply looking to indulge in some delicious Japanese cuisine, Botan is a must-visit destination for food lovers in Tokyo.

The real taste of nagahama tonkotsu. No chicken in the broth there. Pure pork taste and smell, an odor that you can smell as soon as you open the door.

After all these years, and probably more than a hundred stores tried, still the best ramen in Tokyo for me. Only if you can handle nagahama ramen of course.

If I could give 6 stars, I would.

Translated from Japanese:

When I think of tonkotsu ramen, I come here without hesitation. You can eat authentic Nagahama ramen. The appeal of this restaurant is that the food is delicious, but there are always empty seats and you can get in right away. The ingredients are also simple. On this day, I added a little chive bean sprout topping...

I ate ramen, a substitute egg, and a flavored egg. The smell of pork bones wafts from the front of the store. Rich pork bone soup with salt sauce, thin noodles, wood ear fungus, green onions, and chashu pork. I ate it with ground sesame seeds on the table and red pickled ginger on top. ...
