This post is for the new ramen places that I tried this trip so the old reliables like Fuunji are not included. Tontoro is absolutely worth the 45 minute trip down from Kumamoto. Absolutely nothing to complain about.
I've already written a post just for Butayarou. My stomach is rumbling right now. So many tonkotsu ramen shops in Melbourne and they are all shit.
3. Mankai (Temmabashi)
4. ITTOU (Shin Koiwa)
Ittou is fish soup tsukemen, a flavour that Yoshi's Mensousai Mugen is going for but doesn't come close.
5. SEIRYUU (Shin Koiwa)
Not bad. If only they opened for dinner.
I found one stupid Japanese post naming this one of the top 10 tonkotsu shops in Tokyo. Unfortunately, it tastes very generic. Nothing stood out for me at all.
7. ROKUGETSU Asakusabashi
Soup is decent, chaashiu is fucking awesome but the men is so bad. Really instant noodle quality. Sigh.
