Feel free to follow favy!

Taiwan Maze Soba [Menya Hanabi]

Taiwan maze soba (dry ramen) is rapidly spreading in popularity throughout Japan, and 'Menya Hanabi' is where it all started! Chewy fat noodles are topped with spicy ground meat and an egg yolk, plus other toppings, including chives, fish powder, onions, and nori. You mix everything up before eating, and then enjoy a spicy, flavor-packed bowl of noodles. When you're finished, rice is free, so you can polish off any extra spices and oils left in the bottom of the bowl!

Yamagata Style Spicy Miso [Karamiso Ramen Fukuro]

At 'Fukuro,' diners can enjoy a bowl of ramen inspired by the legenday ramen shop 'Ryu Shanghai' in the chef's home prefecture of Yamagata.
The soup has an 'animal-style' base that includes a mixture of chicken, pork, and fish, and is flavored with miso. A sprinkling of aonori and fish powder on top further deepen the rich seafood flavor. The noodles are medium-thick flat noodles that are a perfect complement to the soup!

Thick, Sweet Miso Ramen [Ramen Hachiryu]

Nagoya is known for its miso-based foods, and sure enough, there are some fantastic miso ramens as well! Only open for lunch, 'Ramen Hachiryu' is a great place to get a great bowl of miso ramen. The picture shows their 'Miso Chashu Ramen.'
The slightly sweet, rich soup goes wonderfully with the semi-fat, straight noodles.

Jiro Style [Ramen Dai]

Inspired by the popular Tokyo shop 'Ramen Jiro,' 'Ramen Dai' in Nagoya lets guests choose from a selection of free toppings that includes veges, garlic, and "extra fat." The ramen shown in the picture is just the standard-size 'Ramen.'
The noodles are squared, flat-style noodles that have a wonderful chewiness and wheat flavor. The extra-oily, shoyu flavored soup is the perfect match for a heap of veges, which give the rich bowl a nice balance.

Classic, Yet Outstanding Ramen [Menya Kitara]

If you're seeking a lighter, more traditional ramen, this is the place to go. The ramen in the picture is the 'Konjaku Shina Soba,' the most popular item. The base is a special mix of seafood and animal style broths, and is full of umami and richness, despite being a lighter, clear soup. The noodles to match the soup are medium-thin and wavy, and have a smooth texture.

In Closing

This concludes our quick list of 5 must-try ramens in Nagoya. Each ramen on the list is very different, so we recommend trying all of them! Happy eating!
