Fukuwauchi ramen

I chose Fukuwauchi ramen (二九八家らーめん, 1000 yen). Fukuwauchi ramen is gorgeous one. It have boiled egg with soy sauce, green onion, menma, laver and stew of cubed meat.

The soup is based on soy sauce and it have plenty of back fats of pork (=seabura).
It looks fatty ? No. Though it have much fats, somehow it have light tastes 🙂

There’re seasonings on the table.
From left to right, grated garlic, Doubanjiang (spicy miso) and Fukuwauchi special sauce (spicy). Fukuwauchi special sauce is flavory. Not just spicy. It went with Fukuwauchi ramen well.
