Tontoro (鹿児島ラーメン 豚とろ本店)

 0992225857  Kagoshima Pref. Kagoshimashi Yamanokuchichou 9-41

A popular ramen restaurant that is also one of Kagoshima's best located in the Temmonkan-dori shopping arcade. As its name implies in Japanese, the restaurant's specialty Tontoro Ramen is topped with pork that practically melts in your mouth. The broth, made with pork bones, chicken bones, and seafood, is surprisingly light, making it popular with the shop's women customers as well. The rice with roasted pork is also popular and includes a heaping helping of chashu roast pork made with neck meat, a rare delicacy of which only a small amount can be obtained from one animal. A three-minute walk from Takamibaba Station on the municipal tram.

I happen to come to Kagoshima about one time every year for business reasons, always for one or two nights.
So the last year when I was there, just by chance, I...

My only regret is not ordering chashumen. That pork is melt-in-your-mouth amazing. The noodles are good, but the pork is excellent!
