Famous restaurant for Hiroshima’s specialty “Onomichi ramen”
Tsutafuji’s ramen is well known for its flavorful soy sauce based soup that is flavored with the local specialty of small boiled and dried fish called “iriko” along with other types of seafood and tonkotsu （pork bone）. Pork back-fat is added for a rich flavoring covering the top of the soup which stays piping hot until the end.
Well established and unchanging flavor of the “chuuka soba” ramen
The representative item on the menu is the “chuuka soba” （nami [normal] size, 550 yen）. The pork back-fat that floats in the hot soup almost seems to overflow from the bowl it’s served in making for a refreshing yet rich bowl of noodles. The noodles are soft, straight, and a little on the thin side mixing with the soup resulting in an outstanding balance of flavor. From the pleasing chicken and pork bone broth, you can faintly smell the aroma of seafood.
Soft udon noodles also go well with the exquisite soup in the “chuuka udon”
One other distinctive feature of this ramen shop in Hiroshima’s Onomichi City is that you can find “chuuka udon” on the menu right next to the “chuuka soba” ramen. Tsutafuji’s special soup is a remarkable match for soft udon noodles as well as the normal noodles found in ramen. This is one item on the menu that boasts unflinching popularity.
