Popular Ramen in Japan, Tenka Ippin, -Ramen Vol 2
by Sayuri Fujimoto
Today I’d like to introduce a very popular ramen shop “Tenka Ippin”, 天下一品.
Well, it’s not an original of Nara.
However, I introduce this ramen shop because it gives you more opportunity to try during your stay in Japan. They have 238 branches in Japan and even 4 branches in Honolulu, Hawaii.
You can find them in Nara, Kyoto, Osaka, Tokyo or many places in Japan.
Even in Nara, there are 9 branches.
So, during your stay in japan, you will have lots of chance to try this ramen.
The ramen shop has started its business in Kyoto in 1971.
The most popular feature of this ramen is its soup.
The soup is made from ordinary ingredients, such as chicken bones and vegetables, which are turned into rich, exquisite soup by the secret method that the founder created through strenuous efforts.
You can choose the soup type from three kinds, “Kotteri” (rich), “Assari” (light) and “Kossari”(mix of Kossari & Assari).
Generally, the popular soup type is Kotteri. The soup made by simmering chicken bones and other ingredients tastes rich at first, but later surprisingly clean.
But my favorite one is Kossari. After I had Kotteri and Assari, I tried Kossari. Since then, I always order Kossari, which you can enjoy the rich soup but easier to eat up than Kotteri.
The photos of Tenka Ippin ramens I show you here are Kossari type and Assari type. you can see the difference of the soup.
Are you getting hungry?
Enjoy exploring Japanese Ramen!
