I usually eat typical Japanese ramen such as shoyu (soy sauce), miso, shio (salt), and tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen, but sometimes I have a craving for something else like tomato ramen.
The concept at this ramen shop is delicious, healthy ramen. They specialize in tomato-based ramen broth.
The broth is actually a low fat chicken and tomato based broth. It is light and very fresh tasting. The soup and the thin noodles match very well. The tomato flavor spreads very smoothly over your taste buds.
This ramen is totally different from typical Japanese ramen. You might find it similar to Italian food, but this shop's tomato ramen is not spaghetti.
