    Ittoku, located in Tenri City, 30 minutes away from Nara City, is a ramen restaurant designated as a BIB Gourmand restaurant.

    Since I found this ramen restaurant in the Michelin guide of Nara 2017, I have been trying to go there for one year, but it has been always closed.

     

     

    But this summer finally I found it open and suddenly got a chance to try it.

     

    The reason of closing for long seems that the owner-chef was in bad shape.

    I’m happy to see this young owner-chef looks in good condition now.

     

    The signature dish of Ittoku is salt-flavored ramen.

    The owner-chef says he pursued simplicity to perfect the flavor. The soup is made by carefully cooking a whole Kagoshima-sourced chicken, and adding dashi made from katsuo-bushi or kombu, and Mongolian rock salt to bring out the mellowness and depth. The ingredients are simple: thin-sliced roasted Italian pork char siu, shredded leek and organic Japanese mustard spinach.

     

     

    Soy-flavored ramen

     

    I love this ramen.

    I’m satisfied every parts of this ramen, soup, noodle and pork.

    Very simple but flavorful and gentle taste.

    Besides the salt-flavored ramen,  the soy-flavored ramen is also fantastic.

    The owner-chef and a staff have a great hospitality.

    I definitely become a regular of Ittoku.
