The Taste of Ramen From Kumamoto
[updated Aufust 2022]

Higomons in Nishi-Ogikubo is really close to the station, and a great place to sample the ramen flavors of Kumamoto, Japan. The style of ramen is tonkotsu, or pork bone-soup ramen. Kumamoto-style Tonkotsu Ramen (670 yen) is their specialty. They make their soup by boiling pork bone for 24 hours until the broth has the consistency of creamy milk, very heavy and rich. When you eat the ramen, however, you will be surprised to find that the soup is actually relatively light. Also on the plus side is that the soup does not carry the usual overwhelming pork odor of many tonkotsu ramen shops. The light soup goes really well with the straight noodles that are neither too thick nor too thin. Their “Kakuni Ramen”, Braised Pork Ramen (880 yen), is highly recommended. They also have vegetable ramen (820 yen) and “Chashu Ramen” (880 yen). Some additional toppings available include Gyoza dumplings and Ajitama, a boiled egg seasoned in soy sauce. The shop has 18 seats available.
