urinbo ramen

This is a Kyushu style pig bone soup ramen.
Have you heard about “kaedama”? This is a Kyushu style of eating ramen. You can order just noodles to put into the soup you still have left. Kyushu style ramen tend to have lesser amount of noodles, so try ordering “kaedama” like a Japanese man.
