We came for the cheese ramen. It was a unique dish and melting the cheese into the ramen was an interesting experience. The other ramen dishes were also very good. The pork ramen I had was excellent. We came in for a late lunch and was greeted graciously by the owners. The service was very good. The male owner even recommended other eating places in the vicinity and informed us about the next day's weather forecast. As my 6 year old grand daughter got a little restless after the meal, he gave her drawing material. She drew some pictures, with the words "I love ramen", and gave this to the owner. This is definitely a nice family restaurant. The ramen is very good at a reasonable price.
The husband and I sampled another ramen joint on our food tour of Japan. As an American, I do love dairy and feel that it is underrepresented here in Japan. So, I was very pumped to try this local flavor of ramen with cheese. We tried eating here on a Friday, but it was closed. We asked a kind gentleman walking by what time it opened and he said 6. Mind you, it was 6:40. Google translate could only go so far in helping us to communicate, but we ultimately figured out that it was not open and he didn't know why. So we went to a place around the corner - Horumon-ya Take, which I also reviewed. The next night, our hotel called in advance and made a pseudo reservation. The ramen came out quickly with 3 slices of wine cheese on top. We were expecting shredded. Then, with the help of a translation sheet, the host instructed us to stretch the cheese as it melted so that its shape resembled a noodle and eat the ramen as you normally would (slurping, spoon, and sticks). We did. The cheesy bites were very yummy. The ramen itself though, seemed rather plain, potentially even sub par. I'd like to give this place a 3.5, because the cheese made the ramen above average, but not quite a four. But alas, no half bubbles in TA. Bottom line: worth trying if you have a few meals to eat out.
