Hence, I had to go to Ichiran to try its ramen and confirm how delicious it is. To begin with, it is important to know that you have to wait in a queue, but the good thing is, it goes fast. In other words, the wait is not long, around 20 minutes, and then you are ready to eat at Ichiran Ramen.

A significant fact from where Ichiran Ramen comes from. That is to say, the ramen is made in Itoshima, Fukuoka land of abundant nature, which its secret is the clean air and fresh water.

Another helpful tip that you should know is that the boiled egg does not come inside the ramen. So, you have to order it apart and simultaneously, the egg is unpeeled. That’s why you must peel it by yourself.

After that, it was time to eat ramen at Ichiran, where I tried the classic Tonkotsu Ramen. Basically, it is a pork bone broth that is very tasty and creamy, besides the fresh green onions, sliced pork and noodles. Additionally, the Original Spicy Red Sauce is a chilli-powder-based blend of 30 different ingredients that are added to the ramen to bring out a more rich taste. Moreover, the spicy red sauce is optional. So, if you don’t like spicy, you can tell them without sauce.


As a result, Ichiran ramen is one of the most tasty ramen in Japan and a favourite for many Japanese people. Indeed I proved it, and it is delicious.
