I know there are many kinds of noodles in the world. When someone asks me what my favorite is, I choose Japanese CHAMPON.
If you love eating ramen and haven't yet heard of or tried CHAMPON, you should try it while traveling in Japan.
I will give you a summary about it and recommend a restaurant to you below.
Nagasaki Champon 長崎ちゃんぽん is a type of noodle food.
It looks like ramen and cooked by simmering together with the soup, the noodles and a variety of ingredients such as vegetables, seafood and meat. (Some of the other champon restaurants use fried ingredients before simmering with the soup.)
The noodles of champon are thicker than usual ramen noodles.
Generally, ramen noodles are boiled with hot water. After boiling the noodles, a chef puts them into soup, and puts some ingredients on the ramen. The ingredients of ramen are just toppings. Champon is a different cooking style.
Champon is known as a regional food of Nagasaki 長崎 Prefecture in Kyushu 九州 area, but nowadays it is popular in various locations.
They specializes in champon and has so many restaurants in Japan.
All vegetables and flour of the noodle / dumplings (gyoza) are from 100% Japanese domestic products at RingerHut.
Nagasaki Champon 長崎ちゃんぽん
Regular 590 yen, Middle 570 yen, Small (called Snak スナック) 450 yen
There are several tastes of champon such as standard taste, miso taste, spicy taste, and seasonal special one.
The standard one called Nagasaki Champon. When you order Nagasaki Champon, you can choose the bowl size from regular, middle, and snack size (small size). Every size has a different price.
In my opinion, the standard taste one is the most recommended dish of Ringerhut.
This restaurant's champon soup is similar to pork flavored ramen, and delicious!
There are some other restaurants that use salt soup instead of pork soup for their champon.

They use 100% domestically produced wood ear mushrooms.

To be honest, I prefer standard champon soup to this salt soup.
Starchy Soup Champon あんかけちゃんぽん
Ankake Champon あんかけちゃんぽん (500 yen)
It is champon with starchy soup. It is priced amazingly lower than the restaurant's other noodle items.
The difference between this and the others is a lot more sprouts are used instead of other vegetables to save on the cost. Nevertheless, it is still rather tasty and I was satisfied after eating it.
This paste is Yuzu citron pepper (ゆずこしょう Yuzukoshou). Putting it in the soup is good taste.
