Ramen Restaurant
“Ramen Yashichi (らーめん弥七) is a small restaurant, but they maintain a quality and flavor of ramen that blew me away. The broth is technically shoyu base, but it’s heavy and buttery, and perfectly salty and creamy, with both slices of chashu and a scoop of fragrant wok fried pork, to make the flavor even better. All in all, they serve a beautiful bowl of ramen, definitely worth waiting in line to eat.”
