I didn't go there, but I ate at a restaurant by chance. Nagahama-Ramen is a thick and cloudy white type.


Kyushu is famous for shochu (Japanese liquor), citrus fruits, and, not to be forgotten, tonkotsu ramen. I'm not sure what the truth is, but I've heard that Americans also like ramen, but soy sauce ramen is too salty, and tonkotsu ramen is just the right choice. Well, I've realized once again that the Japanese have been taking in too much salt, maybe because they are a marine people.

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced (2013) that salt intake should be less than 5 grams per day. However, the average intake of Japanese is 11.4g for men and 9.6g for women (according to the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare).

Well, that aside, this time we're going to try Hakata Nagahama-Ramen, the leader of Kyushu.

Later on, I was watching a TV program called "Going to eat ramen from all over the world", and the ramen that came out was almost always soy sauce ramen. Gosh, what happened to the salt? The reporter didn't say what he thought of the soup, so I guess it's the same as Japanese soup. Well, this kind of trendy stuff just keeps changing.

I'm sorry to say that I originally liked soy sauce ramen, but I don't like tonkotsu ramen.

I haven't had tonkotsu ramen in a while. As soon as you take a sip of the murky pork bone soup, you can smell the feral aroma. Then, pretending to be friendly, it crept into the back of my mouth and drifted upstairs into my nasal cavity. I'd like to bow to you, but then I'm very sorry...

Then I put a large amount of ginger and Chinese cabbage on the table and started to eat the noodles. The thin, white, hard noodles are also characteristic of this dish, and it wasn't too bad for me (the other customers had ordered the hard Bali noodles). The fresh seaweed sprinkled on top of the soup was very flavorful and delicious, and I ate all but the soup.

My partner, who came with me, said he couldn't have pork bone soup, but he seemed to like it.
