“Menya Nakagawa” in Nakatsu

A super-rich ramen from a yakitori restaurant

For lunch today I visited “Menya Nakagawa”, a ramen restaurant in Nakatsu. The ramen restaurant launched its business in a vacant space in a yakitori restaurant Kitashinchi.
Being located in a yakitori restaurant, the soup stock was, of course, made of chicken bones. Menya Nakagawa serves only two types of soup-based dishes: ramen with a super-rich soup and tsukemen.
Today I tried the toribaitan ramen.

The chicken broth is rather thick.
It’s dense with chicken flavor and is amazingly delicious!

I think that people who love chicken are going to find this is unbearably delicious. I also think that there are folks who are going to get hooked on the flavor of the chicken, which is so rich that a film forms on the surface of the soup.

Thick noodles.

The noodles, with their smooth but firm texture, and the rich soup make a powerful combo that tastes just great!

Chicken char-siu.

The more you chew, the more flavor is released, and it tastes amazing!

When I sprinkled some black pepper on, it firmed up the flavor of the entire dish. It tasted really good!

Pay ¥100 extra at lunch time (11:00 a.m.— 3:00 p.m.), and they will add a serve of karaage-don or char siu-don. How’s that for wonderful service!

My toribaitan ramen cost ¥650 and with a karaage-don or a char siu-don it’s ¥100 extra, so that’s ¥750 in total!
No matter what you might think, that’s more than great value!

As Menya Nakagawa was originally located in a yakitori restaurant, you can also order yakitori items at very reasonable prices.
I love it that you can have a drink with some yakitori, then finish off with some ramen!

While the restaurant interior is quite simple, it has a really nice atmosphere. (^^

This is a place that I’d love to visit at night too!
