Taste great ! worth queuing up even it was cold winter time.


I went to Nara for work and entered the store as I was passing by.

I got in at the right time, so I was able to sit down without lining up.
*A few minutes later, there were customers waiting outside.

Since it was my first time to eat here, I was worried about which flavor would be good, but I decided on the traditional soy sauce ramen.

I was also hungry, so I added a set of chashu rice bowl and fried chicken.

Ramen is a light soup
It was made without chemical ingredients, so it was like a special soup, and it was delicious.
The char siu was just the right thickness and the fatty part was delicious!

The chashu rice bowl was also delicious.

Next time I come, I would like to try the dried sardines soba ^_^
