Waraku Ramen Izakaya

Pin It Now!
Like in the movie Tampopo, I'm always searching for the perfect bowl of ramen.  Its a little difficult to find in the city, but I still hope. 

Tsukemen is served as like a deconstructed ramen.  A side of thick noodles with a side of hearty broth.  The broth is a mixture of tonkatsu and a fish based broth, heavy on the fish.  I found the broth to be much too salty even by ramen standards.

The house made tonkatsu broth is rich and milky.  Its a decent bowl of ramen, but the thick noodles throw me off here.

The tan tan noodles are a seasonal special item.  True to tan tan men style, the broth is spicy, but this one is made with chicken stock.  There was lots of spicy ground pork mixed with crunchy bean sprouts, cilantro, and green onions.  The noodles are a little thicker than normal, but still had a nice chewiness.
