The soup is "Tori Paitan" which is made from a chicken broth. It is a bit thick and tastes rich and creamy.

The noodles are thin and chewy. You can choose the firmness of your noodles too.

The ramen also has a slice of chicken which is simmered in "shiokoji" (a Japanese traditional condiment made from salt and rice malt), kikurage (a kind of mushroom), and chopped green onions as well as the lemon.

So how does lemon work in a ramen bowl? It actually adds some good sourness and a fruity flavor to the rich soup, which creates an amazing combination. The more you squeeze the lemon, the more refreshing the ramen becomes.

It is also recommended to add a soft-boiled egg as a topping.
