Ramen. It makes me hungry just looking at the word! This wonderful dish is a Japanese comfort food and is known all over the world. There are hundreds of ramen shops in Tokyo and all over Japan, and numerous different varieties to indulge in. If you’ve got a craving for ramen, and feel like one bowl is not good enough, then you should check out an awesome newly opened shop in Tokyo called Ramen Buffet Buta!
Ramen Buffet Buta is not your typical ramen shop as it offers all-you-can-eat ramen for less than 1,000 yen (1,050 yen for male adults)! It is not very common to find a ramen shop which allows diners to eat endlessly, but at Ramen Buffet Buta diners can create their own ramen, add as many toppings as they desire, and eat as much as they can in the allocated time!
Ramen is a typical food eaten in Japan. It is a noodle soup dish that is ideal for travelers who are on a budget. There are so many types of ramen based on stock soup, and one of these is pork stock ramen which generally uses pork stock. This is also known as tonkotsu ramen. Tonkotsu ramen is a particularly popular dish which originated in Fukuoka but can now be found everywhere in Japan! It was originally prepared as a fast food for laborers working in fish markets.
To prepare the ramen, pork bones are boiled until they dissolve. This results in a tasty, cloudy, white broth. Most of the time, pork fat is used to thicken it and make the dish into a creamy soup. It is simply a delicious and comforting meal to have, especially during the cold season!
