Pork Back Fat Ramen

So, what is pork back fat ramen anyways? It is a ramen that uses pork's back fat. It is very popular and beloved by greasy, heavy and rich ramen lovers. It adds exquisite flavor to a soup which makes it super addictive.

Around a 5 minute walk from Akihabara station, we found a remarkable store with red walls with a yellow sign that says "when you eat it, you will know!".

As we enter the door, we found a machine where we can purchase a ticket to place an order.

We found a poster that says "You can choose the amount of pork back fat". Sappari (top) is the one with least fat, Gottsu (middle) is regular amount, and Gote-gote (bottom) is the one with largest amount of fat. In terms of ratio, fat:soup for sappari, gottsu and gote-gote is 1:9, 6/7: 4/3, and 9:1 respectively.

We decided to order their most popular menu among Japanese people and tourists, Shoyu (soy sauce soup) Ramen, with regular amount of fat.

Here goes the most rich ramen in Akihabara! Look at this! It’s a mountain of green onions and two huge char-siu (porks)! You can barely see the noodles! As you can see, the white thing floating on the soup is their exclusive pork back fat.

Their huge char-siu would just melt in your mouth. Other toppings include lots and lots of green onions, menma (bamboo shoots), and huge amount of bean sprouts. Green onions add hint of spiciness to the soup's mild and creamy taste which make the ramen more savory.

Their noodles are medium thick wrinkled noodles that entangle well with soup and pork back fat. They were chewy and filling, and tasted really good with its mild soup.

"Our soup and noodles are relatively light", says the chef. What makes their ramen so rich is the plentiful top-notch pork back fat.

Let's see the difference between Sappari, Gottsu, and Gote-gote!

Sappari (lightest): you can see the clear soup, and it is comparatively easy to drink than Gote-gote.

Gottsu (regular): If you like rich ramen and want to try what pork back fat ramen taste like, you should probably start from here. You can still see the clear soup.

Gote-gote (heaviest): Look. You can't really see the soup, can you? Isn't it amazing? Just imagining how flavorful this ramen is, my stomach is making noises.


You can clearly see the difference, right? Apparently some people order only pork back fat too! They are really flexible, so if you want less fat, or if you feel that the soup is really thick and you want to make it lighter, you can ask them for wari-soup, a soup that you can add to your ramen to change the flavor.
They have two types of wari-soup, light plain soup to make the soup more plain, and special soup with eggs and green onions to add more flavor!
