First, I should say that this is the best ramen in town. I’ve been there couple of times and I can say that I am satisfied with the food and of course the service. The atmosphere of the restaurant itself is very nice, with dim lights but not too dark so we can still see clearly. Santouka Ramen is very crowded especially during lunch time.
When we arrived, we were served with a glass of cold water even before we order the ramen. It’s actually very usual in Japan, where we go to some restaurants and they’ll serve us a glass of water immediately after we sit down.
I always choose Chasu ramen with shio broth/soup everytime I go there because the soup itself tastes magnificent and the chasu is thick and delicious too. Santouka is a hokkaido style ramen, I’m not quite sure but the noodles and the toppings are different than Sanpachi or Marutama ramen. Santouka’s chasu ramen is served with bambooshoots, mushroom, kamaboko (fish paste or naruto), and umeboshi.
The staffs are friendly, the price is reasonable (70K-100K), the foods are great. Overall, Santouka ramen is a worth trying restaurant.
