Tonkotsu broth ramen is the specialty of Ramen Yamadaya. Made by ramen masters, tonkotsu is a rich and creamy soup made after 20 hours of cooking pork bone broth to extract the greatest amount of flavor possible. Thin noodles are then added along with tasty ramen toppings like chashu, menma and marinated eggs. If you’re not a ramen freak, you can enjoy other Japanese dishes on the menu.
