#1 BEST Ramen Noodles in JAPAN! FIVE HOUR WAIT!

  • Published on Nov 19, 2018
  • I still love Ichiran, BUT I found someone new. Someone who completely changed my heart!
    Tomita Ramen was INCRIDBLELY amazing!!! It was so amazing that I had to go back and eat there once more. Something about the shiny wheat (chuka soba) noodles, the rich creamy broth, and that delicate fatty chashu pork just blew me away.

    If you want good ramen. Either you go down south to fukuoka with hakata ramen or go up north with sapporo miso ramen. The ramen you ate is ordinary and ridulously expensive.

    This guy's judgement on food is just way too biased. He's like "this egg is just full of flavour and has lighter texture and oh my gosh it's so worth the wait"
    Dude, it's a boiled egg. A FREAKIN BOILED EGG

    Tomita(とみ田) dipping ramen is one of the most famous. theres also branch shop at Chiba-station after ticket gate, and Narita Intl airport after security check. mikey went to the one in Matsudo is the best of group but others still worth visiting. Be sure you choose "dipping" ramen(つけめん). Enjoy fish frake miso base soup with yuzu skin.

    True, if you tasted the best ramen, your expectation will be higher the next bowl, like you're hoping the next bowl is at par.
