Upper back fat of roast pork plus small, dried sardines blend well in this good ramen
Seaburanokami is a Ramen shop 5 min. on foot from Omiya Station on the Hankyu Kyoto Line. Their specialty is Ramen in a broth based on the fatty upper back of roast pork and small, dried sardines. The shop's name literally means ”God of Backfat”. It is a fatty, rich name that might give you heartburn. But don't be fooled by the name. The pork's fatty upper back is actually less fatty than it looks. It hardly has the fatty oil or texture you would expect. You only taste the broth's body and umami flavor. Only by sipping the broth will you understand and notice this.
The shop is always full of customers. The shop's furniture has subdued color tones, making it look like a chic bar.
