Seasonal Menu

Kitakata Cold Ramen 和風冷やしラーメン 820 yen
is regular menu.

They offer Chinese Style Cold Ramen 中華風冷やしラーメン 880 yen is available from May to September.

Generally, this is called “Hiyashi-chuka” at a ramen shop, and it is type of cold ramen. A slightly sour, cold sauce is used instead of ramen broth. Eating cold noodles with shredded cucumber and pickled ginger is refreshing, especially on a hot summer day.

Pork Broth, Soy Sauce Base Soup, 5-Sliced Char-siu Pork Seasoned Bamboo Shoot, Chopped Green Onion

This Kitakata ramen originated at a restaurant named, “Bannai Shokudo 坂内食堂”, which is still located in Kitakata 喜多方 City in Fukushima 福島 prefecture, Japan.

It is a chain shop which operates under a name: “KITAKATA RAMEN BANNAI 喜多方ラーメン坂内”.

Char-siu Pork Ramen

Char-siu Ramen 970 yen
焼豚ラーメン

Do you like char-siu?
Are you very hungry?
If so, this is the option for you. So many slices of char-siu are layered over the noodles that you can't see inside the bowl; it is completely covered in char-siu. If you are not particularly hungry, you may grow tired of eating char-siu.

About 13 sliced of Char-siu pork are topped on the ramen.

Specialty of Kitakata Style Ramen

The broth appears to be translucent and has a very smooth, light flavor. This broth is made in a very traditional Japanese style. The special curly noodles do a good job of holding the flavor of the broth. Another highlight of this shop is the char-siu, which is particularly tender and delicious.

KITAKATA Ramen - Miso

KITAKATA Ramen - Miso 720+60=780 yen
喜多方ラーメン 味噌味

If you pay 60 yen more, you can switch out the broth to Miso or Shio (Salt) instead of a soy based one.

However, the menu does not have any pictures of the Shio or Miso ramens. The fact you can change the type of broth is only written in small print in the corner.

It may be that some customers don't know that these broths are an option.

喜多方ラーメン坂内 味噌 Kitakata Ramen Bannai Miso

To be honest, I much prefer their soy sauce soup to miso, because their miso flavor is not so unique.

Some ice cubes are in it.

I prefer classic and warmed type Kitakata Ramen to Kitakata Cold Ramen, because warmed and softer Char-siu with warmed broth tastes much better than Cold Ramen.
