Black Ramen (Nishicho Taiki Honten), Toyama


This ramen shop serves Toyama Black Ramen. We went to this ramen shop at Toyama (the noodles were call “Chuka soba” 中華そば). The noodle was good but too salty for us, it would be better if we ate with rice.
The menu is only Japanese and the owner was friendly explained to us on the menu.
Toyama Black Ramen is one of Japanese ramen, and its characteristics is strong soy sauce flavor, which makes the soup black. However, unlike the other black noodles, the broth here is salty. The bamboo shoots too are salty and please be careful about it.
