Yesterday I went to Tokyo for my band work.
Whenever I go to Tokyo, I make it a rule to eat a new ramen during my stay. This time, I tried Kyushu Jangara Ramen.
This is a tonkotsu ( pork base broth ) type ramen and its taste was fabulous with only 600 yen for a simple ramen. Kyushu ramen or Hakata ramen are already popular anywhere in Japan but the competition is very hard in Tokyo, which makes many of the ramens in Tokyo really tasty.
Jangara Ramen has some branches in Tokyo like Ginza, Harajuku, Akasaka, Akihabara,and Ikebukuro. I went to the Ikebukuro branch which is located on the top floor of SEIBU department store at Ikebukuro station.
I slightly remember I once tried this Jangara ramen more than 10 years ago in Tokyo. If my memory is correct, the Jangara restaurant was not so popular then. But this time I recognized this ramen is good. Survival game of Tokyo ramen battle is always severe. Jangara ramen successfully servived the ramen wars in Tokyo ans it has fans for its ramen. At my last time trial, I didn't especailly want to come back again. But this time, Jangara ramen taste gave me good motive to explore more about Tokyo ramen market.
I will gladly come back again to Jangara ramen shop.
