IMPORTANT This shop is the best location! I wouldn’t recommend some of the others.

Amazing spicy Taiwanese style ramen. ✨🍜
• Would travel to Nagoya for it and get it when I’m here.
• The regular chowhan/fried rice (dont get the garlic one…for some reason it wasn’t as good) was nice and peppery.
• The egg drop soup was worth getting.
• The 杏仁豆腐 wasn’t worth getting IMO
• There was a line but it moved quickly. 👍

• Random note but the air conditioning was awesome


Nagoya is known for “Taiwan Ramen” which does not originate from Taiwan. It’s a spicy ramen with minced pork and a bunch of peppers, but totally bearable.

I’m Thai btw. It might be spicy for you.

I’ll be back to try other items! There’s a bom choy and uni dish that sounds enticing.


My favourite ramen in Japan - Taiwan ramen. Always make a stop in Nagoya just to get it. Spicy AF but got used to the regular spice. However their “Alien” spice level is the spiciest thing I’ve ever tried to eat.
