#3294: Kubota Men Raimu Kitakata Ramen - Japan

Here’s a fancy variety that came from a Ramen Trunk. Ramen Trunk is a subscription service featuring monthly boxes of super premium ramen from Japan! Use coupon code RAMENRATER20OFF for a discount on your first order!

Here’s what they have to say about this one: ‘Kitakata is a small town of 90,000 people located in western Fukushima province. Sadly, Fukushima is best known nowadays for the recent tsunami, but in Japan the little area is very well known for their delicious ramen that is still thriving. Surrounded by rice fields and mountains, the only way to reach Kitakata is by local train.

This Kitakata ramen is a mild shoyu (soy sauce) based soup broth delicately balanced to not be too overpowering in flavor and only slightly oily. The noodles are decently tick, soft, and smooth. Unique to Kitakata ramen is the slight waviness of the noodles. The softness of the noodles are caused by a higher content of water than is typical since these noodles are ‘tsukemen.’ This causes the noodles to be slippery and some say they slide down your throat and hardly need to be chewed!’
