The Ramen restaurant, Naritake is famous for Tonkotsu (pork bones) Ramen. It has a rich soup and the noodles are thick. Plus, its toppings are Chāshū (sliced braised pork), sliced green onions, and Menma (seasoned bamboo shoots). Thick noodles moderately entwine with a richly-textured soup, and that action significantly enhances the flavor of Ramen. It is rich, but not greasy. The Chāshū is not too thick, but succulent and meltingly delicious. Once you try it, you will be hooked.
To give a clear definition of ramen, Ramen consists of Chinese wheat noodles with a broth flavored with Tonkotsu (pork bones), Gyokai (fishes), Miso (fermented soybean paste), Shōyu (soy sause), or Shio(salt). Every area in Japan has a different combination of toppings, for instance, Chāshū (sliced braised pork), Nitamago (a seasoned boiled egg), Nori (dried seaweed), Naruto(fish paste), green onions, corn, a block of butter, and so many other food items.
Naritake is located in Motoyawata. You take the Sōbu Line to Motoyawata, then walk for a few minutes. It is easy to access to the restaurant.
When you visit Naritake, I would like you to eat Shōyu Ramen. It costs 650 yen. It is rich and has a hearty taste. If you are hungry, you can double the size of Ramen. If you want to do that, you have to pay 100 yen more.
Each staff member is full of vitality and they are energetic. Though it is not an upscale Ramen restaurant, the staff respond and serve food politely and efficiently. The restaurant is bustling with activity, and I am excited while being there. There are 24 seats at the bar and you can see the kitchen from your seat. While you are waiting for your ramen, you can watch how they it and that make you not bored.
Naritake has 5 branches in Japan. The Motoyawata branch is better than any of the other Japanese branches; because the volume and the taste of Ramen and the atmosphere of Naritake, are totally different from the other branches.
Interestingly, a Paris branch opened in 2011. The menu and the taste were changed to be adapted to the Parisian palate. Owing to that, it has been greatly accepted in Paris.
Although, Ramen has a high calorie content, it is a quick and convenient food for all and it is fine to eat Ramen alone. As I mentioned that Ramen is rich in calories. However, it is better than any of the other fast food, because it is made with fresh ingredients and it is handmade food, not processed food.
Needless to say, Naritake continues the grand tradition of Ramen and keeps the tradition going. I am definitely sure that you will be fueled by the Ramen of Naritake if you eat it. Naritake is the best Ramen in Japan both in name and in reality.
