Story & Recommendation
A shio tonkotsu ramen shop, always with a long queue
Aitsuno-Ramen Kataguruma is located a 12 minute walk from the JR Tambaguchi Station. The owner of this shop originally apprenticed at the very popular ramen shop Oreno-Ramen Appareya / 俺のラーメン あっぱれ屋, located in Joyo City in Kyoto before turning independent and opening his own place here. With a distinctive name, and a deeply rich tonkotsu soup that quickly attracted acclaim, in the blink of an eye, the shop became so popular that you will always see endless lines of customers waiting to be served. The most famous item on the Aitsuno-Ramen Kataguruma menu is the shio tonkotsu ramen, prepared with deeply rich tonkotsu broth, extracted from simmering pork bone for several hours. With a distinct flavor that can absolutely never be found at any other shop, the taste which causes 10 out of 10 people to declare “this is delicious!” is of a level of quality which makes us imagine that perhaps we have witnessed, in some ways, the ultimate and definitive form of shio ramen. The shop itself is a modern and brightly spacious environment, and frequented by an extremely large amount of female customers. As you will find it always very crowded, you should be prepared to line up for about 30 minutes at least.

Always very crowded, so it’s likely that you’ll find yourself waiting between 30 minutes to an hour.
