Here’s what they had to say about this one ‘Ramen Yokozuna is a famous ramen shop that opened in 1972 with its main store in Kisshoin, Kyoto. Popular among locals, it features tonkotsu soy sauce flavored ramen. In addition to Kyoto, there are today more than 40 stores in Kinki, Tokai, and Chiba prefectures. The soup is based on the umami of pork and chicken, with a hint of sweetness from the onions, added to make it a standard yet rich pork bone and soy sauce flavored soup. The noodles are made using a proprietary method, giving them their characteristically smooth texture with a little crisp. To top it off, we have some delicious char siu, menma and green onions.’
Looks like a fancy one – let’s check it out.
