Ube ramen is familiar to the citizens as typical local food. Ikkyu, one of the biggest ramen restaurants chains, has eight shops in the city and has contributed to its growing fame. Each shop was opened in different years, but all the shops are proud of Ikkyu’s fifty-year history. Every shop’s flavor is slightly different, as all the cooking processes are done at each shop. However, the biggest feature of the brand is brownish thick soup. Bones taken from several parts of a pig are simmered at high heat. You might become addicted to the rich taste of soup!
