This reminds me of the Ramen Koji in Osaka. On the 5th floor of Canal City, there is the Raumen Stadium. A floor filled with ramen shops selling specialty ramen from different part of Japan. I love ramen. For a quick "snack" before dinner, we decided to have some ramen noodle. That sounds totally crazy....ramen as snack before dinner. Good that I don't live in Japan. If not, I'd become 600 pounds in no time!
Random picture of one of the shops. I didn't come to this one...
I went to The Sapporo Ramen Earth. They have a website dedicated to Raumen Stadium, introducing different shops: http://canalcity.co.jp.e.jx.hp.transer.com/ra_sta/shop/lists/
There wasn't any special reason I picked The Sapporo Ramen Earth. The only reason was there wasn't a line. And for this reason, I think that's why the noodle didn't turn out to be as good?
We got the miso ramen, shoyu ramen and giant gyoza~ Got the food tickets at the front of the shop, which was pretty much all in Japanese. Luckily, there was a waitress to help us.
Ramen arrived! Although I see it wasn't as good as I expected, it was still very good~ Love how thick the soup is~ Drooling as I look at the pics.
