Even it was 2 pm, they were quite full. Choosing between 600 yen and 900 yen (extra pork) was very easy. The pork was chewable but not that soft. The soup was concentrated and tasty. I doubted to see Kimchi as additional side.

Kinda reminded me of chinese style ramen: simple broth, soft noodles, decent roast pork. Not something worth going back for. There are better ramen places nearby.

You will notice the restaurant with a big dragon signage on top just in the middle of dotombori. It's a decent bowl of ramen, the price is only 600 yen, and wow it's so delicious in simplicity. They serves with kimchi.
