Rich Tonkotsu ramen and friendly gentle salt ramen are delicious, Tondou

“We want to make ramen culture root in Okinawa.” It is Tondou that keeps making Ryukyu new ramen with such a hot belief in Okinawa. They love Okinawa, they also like ramen, they are trying hard to root Okinawa Ramen (Ryukyu Shinmen). Recently it seems that a new shop has opened in Taiwan as well as in Okinawa. Ryukyus Shinmen has started to enter not only Okinawa but also Asia. I ate such Tonkotsu ramen (man taste) and salt ramen (female taste).

There are multiple shops in Okinawa Prefecture. This time I went to the Oroku head office in Naha city. Oroku head office, which is also close to the monorail Oroku station, a tourist from overseas and it has been crowded since the morning. The menu is big with the photo at the entrance of the shop. It is also written in English and Chinese, so it is easy to understand for foreign tourists as well.

As you enter the entrance there is a ticket vending machine on the right hand side. The ticket machine is also easy to understand with a photo. I think that the detailed awareness about that is grasping the hearts of overseas tourists.

The interior is a little fun atmosphere for ramen shops. I feel the atmosphere of an old candy store. You can see the state of the kitchen from the counter.

I was pretty hungry today, so I ordered Tonkotsu Ramen (man taste), dumplings and fried rice. After all it is the best to set not only ramen but also dumplings and fried rice to see the taste of the first ramen shop. It is good to eat good ramen with dumplings or fried rice.

Tonkotsu Ramen (man taste), dumplings and fried rice

Well, it is Tonkotsu ramen, dumplings and fried rice. It is quite a volume. First, I would drink a bite of ramen soup. Rich but refreshing tonkotsu soup. Match well with thin noodle. Based on Hakata Tonkotsu ramen, Ryukyu shinmen made use of Okinawan ingredients. It is quite tasty Tonkotsu ramen. Both dumplings and fried rice got well and my stomach was full.

On another day I went to eat female taste ramen. It was a transparent soup, which looked completely different from that of Tonkotsu Ramen. If you drink a bite, it is a refreshing soup on a salt base, but a gentle taste of birds would be on my body. The next day when I drank alcohol, this rustic flavor of ramen will meet my body as much as possible. It was easy to taste, but I also feel solidly, so there is a response to eating.

Long ago, when Okinawa was Ryukyu, it seems that the port town of the gateway of Okinawa was a place called Tondou Town. Tondou town where a lot of people gathered from Okinawa and Asia. It was naming the name of that Tondou town, so they named it “Tondou” in the hope that Ramen culture will prosper in Okinawa. Compared to when I was a child, a considerable ramen shop has been built in Okinawa, I think that really the ramen culture is taking root. A rich Tonkotsu ramen and salt ramen also are delicious, which is also easy to taste. Access is also convenient, so it is recommended for tourists.
