Vegetables and sweetness condensed into flavorful ramen soup
The Tonryu ramen restaurant is a ten minute walk away from Eizan Electric Railway’s Mototanaka Station. It stands apart as one of the most popular restaurants of the ramen battleground that is the Ichijo-ji Temple area.
Tonryu ramen belongs to a variety of ramen commonly referred to as "Vegetable Potage Soup". Several varieties of vegetable are made into a flavorful soup and then stewed together with tonkotsu pork bone soup, creating a dish that merges the sweetness of vegetables with the rich savoriness of pork bone. This ramen is at once heavy and refreshing, qualities that would normally be considered incompatible. If you’ve never eaten "Vegetable Potage Soup" before, we urge you to try it at least once. It’s sure to dramatically change your idea of ramen.
The restaurant has the feel of a modern Chinese restaurant and attracts a large number of female patrons (perhaps because of the abundance of vegetables used in the soup).
