Majime's Yokohama-inspired Ramen in Urawa, Japan

Ramen is undoubtedly a world-renown Japanese dish. Well, some may disagree that Ramen is in fact a Chinese creation, but regardless, Ramen has “Japan” all over it. Hence, it has become mandatory and customary to enjoy a bowl of ramen when you visit the land of the rising sun!

Variety in Ramen Characteristics
I’m  not a Ramen expert, but what I know is that ramen differs across places in Japan. This makes it extremely difficult to compare ramen from another. However, one things for sure, the common characteristic among them all is they are usually delicious. This Yokohoma-ramen store called Majime is a personal recommendation of my friend, Ryo. He brought us there with delight as this is his top favorite!

Distinct characteristic of the ramen
The ramen served here is marked by its distinct fattiness as evidenced by the thickness of the soup. You’ll feel the heaviness as you take a sip like a wave crashing down your buds. It’s an intense ride, but you’ll really taste the honest umami goodness. It may take a lot of guilt to finish a bowl, but I’m telling you it’s all worth it. In fact, it may be one of the best ramen I had in my life!
