Story & Recommendation
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.

Backfat dried small sardines ramen (+Onion, +Egg)
Backfat dried small sardines ramen (+Onion, +Egg) / ¥930
Seaburanokami's specialty, Backfat dried small sardines ramen. Although the sardine-based broth has a tinge of bitterness, it is not a problem. It instead enhances the pork's back fat umami flavor and body. The taste is highly refined and it is more like a high-class cooking. You can order the ramen noodles to be thick or medium-thick according to your preference. Be sure to also order “Onion” for the broth. The “Onion”'s unique pungent flavor and crispiness blended with the back fat broth give a deeper flavor.

Pork bones reckoning noodles (Special)
Pork bones reckoning noodles (Special) / ¥1,100
Pork bones reckoning noodles, another specialty of Seaburanokami. The dipping broth is based on pork bones, fish, and shellfish. Although the flavor is somewhat thick, it features the pork's umami flavor and the faint sourness of the shellfish. You should squeeze the lemon over the dipping broth. It adds a refreshing taste and makes it even more flavorful. As you finish the ramen, they will bring you a bowl of rice. You should pour your leftover broth on the rice to finish your meal. That's the proper way.
3Let's Try!
Sutamina bowl
Sutamina bowl / ¥400
Sutamina bowl has roast pork, green onions, shredded nori, and a raw egg. The roast pork, fresh raw egg, and the shop's own sauce go very well with the white rice. Once you eat this, you can't stop. Although this is only a side order, it is quite filling. Not recommended if you dislike raw eggs.
4Let's Try!
Pepper, Red pepper, Yuzu Pepper, and kuro-shichimi
Pepper, Red pepper, Yuzu Pepper, and kuro-shichimi / Free
If you want to modify the taste of your Ramen, you can try adding a little of the provided spices. Especially recommended is the Yuzu(Japanese citrus) Pepper. This gives the roast pork's fatty upper back a refreshing and unique trace of yuzu.
How to Order


First buy a meal ticket from the vending machine inside the shop. Insert your money and press the button for the Ramen you want. If you need help, enter the shop and ask for an English menu. (Speak simple English.) It will make it easier to order.

- Order Tips -

If you want a large serving of noodles, you can pay 100 extra for Oomori. On the vending machine, press the 麺 大盛 100円 button. However, instead of ordering Oomori, Seaburanokami recommends Kaedama. Kaedama gives you extra ramen noodles after you finish eating the regular serving of Ramen. They put the ramen in your leftover broth. This prevents the last noodles from getting soggy at the end. After you finish eating your ramen and you are ready to order Kaedama, say

Kaedama wo kudasai.


to the staff and pay ¥100. In five minutes or so, they will bring you the extra ramen.
