Apparently the must-eat in Wakayama - it's even on the poster of Wakayama tourism by the official Wakayama tourism association. The restaurant is set up differently from typical ramen places eg those in Tokyo where you are seated at the bar overlooking the kitchen (I...More

Decided to try this ramen since Wakayama is a ramen town. Arrived from Singapore at 11pm and walk about 8mins from Granvia Wakayama to this ramen place. Overall different ramen style as the broth is much thicker though a little tad salty for singaporean taste...More
