A very tasty bowl of tonkotsu based ramen in a super efficient vending machine style order spot (like many other ramen joints in Japan). The pork was also very good (melt in your mouth!) here.

The tonkotsu ramen was very good - it had the little bits of pork fat in the soup, the melt-in-your-mouth piece of pork and springy noodles - YUM. I'd recommend adding some garlic and chilli to taste as well (from the condiments jars in front...More

Fab pork tonkutsu round the corner from the Gracery hotel. 680 yen for a filling portion. Also had the gyozas which were also delicious and just over 300 yen I believe :) I'll be back!

Japanese noodle with mix broth of pork and fish. Free steam rice service in Lunch time. All day free for home made Kimchi 土曜日のお昼11:30ごろ訪問。既に席は満席手前。スープは見た目よりもコッテリしておらず、魚介系の風味も手伝ってか、食べやすいお味かと。ランチタイムのライスサービスや、食べ放題自家製キムチも嬉しい。
