It's a Wakayama ramen, and I like it so much. The broth is just the right taste, for me. The noodles were not too heavy. I ordered the standard size (700¥) so it was just right. But I want to have more meat next time....More

The ramen was quite tasty, not too salty. Noodles were a 4 out of 5. Staff were somewhat utilitarian, but friendly enough. There was a fairly strong (not too pleasant) odour in the restaurant when we were there. Did not rank in our top 20...More

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

Wakayama ramen has this funny dried fish smell. And it all adds to the flavour. The soup here is so distinctive, I'm yearning for more as I write. Only now do I know that the flavour grows on you far beyond what you experience while...More
