Toyama Black Shoyu Ramen

Toyama is known for its jet-black ramen!

As you'd expect, the black colored soy sauce (shoyu) is bold, salty and a bit sweet. This style of ramen was meant be a source of fuel for blue collar workers in the area. You get a packet of spicy pepper that charges the broth even more. Add as much as you like of this condiment.
