Niigata Shoyu Ramen

Niigata's winters are harsh! This ramen is perfectly designed for them. 

Picture this - it's freezing outside. Wouldn't a bowl of ramen hit the spot? This style of Niigata ramen comes from snowy Tsubame-Sanjo. The broth is a bold shoyu (soy sauce) with fish flavors in the background. It's also brimming with rich pork back fat, meant to seal in the heat. In addition, you get beautifully crunchy onions!
