Very different taste compared to the usual ramen. Really good! Very much recommended 👍


I arrived before the store opened and there were already about 5 people in line.
There are only 6 seats at the counter, so I was able to get in at the very first turn.
On this day, only a limited menu was offered.

At this restaurant, you order while seated and only pay in cash. 10,000 yen is no good because I don't have bills to exchange money. Therefore, you will need to prepare 1,000 yen bills and small change.
When I looked at the contents of my wallet, I thought I would be fine with the regular menu, but I was nervous because I only had the limited menu.

The limited menu is "Niboshi Soba Rakshasa", and I can't really tell what's different about it from the regular menu because I can't compare it, but it was a rich niboshi soba with a distinctly nibonibo flavor.
Apparently the noodles are hard.
It's been a long time since I drank all the soup.


Although it has bittersweet, it has an addictive flavor of dried sardines, and the chashu pork on top has a ginger flavor and is light and easy to eat.
It was a really delicious restaurant!

This time I added a marinated egg, but next time I think I'll try adding rice!

I ordered pure dried sardines and aedama!


Rich and bitter
I ordered Vitanibo's special ramen.

The flavor of the dried sardines was well extracted.
This is delicious.

The restaurant has 6 seats at the counter.
Cash only.
10,000 banknotes strictly prohibited.
One-man business.


Pure dried sardines🍜
The soup is overflowing with the flavor of anchovies, and goes perfectly with the slightly hard noodles.
The pork shoulder roast is absolutely delicious~♫
