Tonkotsu Ramen

The shop that is said to have the best seafood tonkotsu ramen around: Sansanto.
It’s only open at night for 2.5 hours between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.! But this doesn’t put a damper on Sansanto’s popularity; people form lines outside in pursuit of a bowl of their famously delicious ramen every night they’re open!
In addition to tonkotsu (pork bones), the broth also incorporates chicken feet, dried fish flakes, and dried sardines for balance; it’s neither too rich nor too light.
Their handmade noodles are of medium thickness, feature a slight wave, and have a smooth yet chewy texture. They were really quite exceptional and went with the soup like a match made in heaven!

Highlights

  • The atmosphere that just screams Showa. Sansanto is run by a lovely couple. The husband seemed a bit shy, but you could tell he prides himself in his work, and the wife was bright and cheerful.
  • Apparently the ramen and tsukemen are equally popular, with the abura soba close behind. .
  • I recommend ordering the side order of chashu as well. It’s so good! The thickly sliced meat is as scrumptious as can be.
