Every time when we write about Ichiran, one of the biggest ramen chain shops in Japan, we would always have to say it is the "King" of pork bone based ramen from Hakata. It is just too good to be true. The soup is almost like a perfection of Tonkotsu based that wows customers with every sip. It is very tasty which you can feel the deepness of it and how sophisticated a bowl of ramen is being so different from the other ramens outside. The thin noodles have a pleasant chewiness which blend perfectly well with the soup and the fresh toppings that leaves everyone completely speechless. On the other hand, the decor is not really great for the families where all seats are separated by the partitions as this place is extremely stoic about being so systematic in how to order and to eat, but most of the people understand that already and take that as part of fun. The Ichiran is also open for 24 hours making it convenient for the customers to stop by.
