Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen and Tsukemen are also good, Menya Taketora

Okinawa noodles are not just Soki soba. In fact, the number of delicious ramen shops has increased recently. You can eat authentic Hakata Tonkotsu ramen in such Okinawa. That is Menya Taketora. I have eaten Hakata Tonkotsu ramen, rich Tonkotsu soup.

Menya Taketora develops 4 shops in Okinawa. I went to the Yonabaru shop along Route 329 this time. It was a bright and beautiful shop not like a ramen shop.

When entering the shop, I pick ramen with a ticket vending machine. This time Seabura Tonkotsu ramen (back pig fat bone ramen) 730 yen, that is the standard. I was hungry so I added buta-mesi (pig rice 250 yen). The happy weekday lunch time is Kaedama (the substitute, one more noodle) or rice is free! I’m glad that the Kaedama is free.

Come on now. Hakata Tonkotsu ramen, plus pig rice set. Fine straight noodle and rich thick pork soup. This is Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen. It is rich tonkotsu soup, but it is easy to eat. There is little peculiar smell of Tonkotsu, I can eat easily. Since I lived in Fukuoka when I was a student, I ate authentic Hakata Tonkotsu ramen. It is a full-fledged and tasty Hakata Tonkotsu ramen that reminds me of the feelings of that time.

Speaking of Hakata Ramen, we have to ask for Kaedama after all. Because it is thin straight noodle, easy to eat, the stomach is not satisfied with only the first cup. But I was satisfied with my stomach when I got Kaedama and pig rice.


As I ate delicious Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen, I went to eat tsukemen noodles on another day. At lunch weekday is free of rice or big noodle. This time I chose rice. Tsukemen noodle soup is a wonderful warmth retainer. So it’s warm to the end and you can enjoy your meal slowly. Tsukemen is thick noodles, smooth texture has a delicious texture. The soup that the taste of Tonkotsu and seafood are condensed is also quite rich. It is not defeated by thick noodles. Finally it is good to change the texture even if you put rice in a Tsukemen soup into a risotto shape. it’s recommended. My stomach was full.
