I am a ramen monster (pronounced lamen). I buy raw ramen in Japan, bring it and cook at home. I am sure I am pretty qualify to say this ramen restaurant is acceptable. And only acceptable, not more.
The restaurant is very basic, as in most ramen restaurants in Japan. So I don’t find the old fitting an issue. I always order the basic miso ramen. Miso is made from beans. And sometimes the miso soup base can easily get very salty. So how to manage the saltiness requires high skills. At Ezogiku the saltiness is fine. But the noodle is not fresh enough nor tender enough. The soup is not hot enough. The pork is fine though, not too fatty but soft.
Miso soup base is more popular in Hokkaido, northern Japan where climate is cold. Soy sauce and salt base is more popular in Tokyo area. Pork soup base (white color) is more popular in Kyushu, southern Japan, and noodle there is more straight and dry.
If you look for a basic noodle, this restaurant is fine.
