I have come back to bring you guys another blog post about ramen. Today I will be talking about a special type of ramen called the "Tokushima ramen". As some of you might have already known, Tokushima is one of the 4 prefectures located in Shikoku island and is the one closest to the Kansai region. So what is so different about this ramen? Well, the broth is made with tonkotsu and shoyu and then you have your chinese-style noodles. The soup is thicker than usual ramen broth and the flavor is salty with a strong pork taste. As for the toppings, you might be expecting very Japanese-ish ones like Cha-shu pork, bamboo-shoots and so on but you won't be finding things like that on this ramen. The toppings are usually green onions, sukiyaki beef and a raw egg. Many local people like to order rice along with this bowl or ramen because to them the ramen is like a side dish. Some locals like to eat it like sukiyaki style where they will beat the yolk in a separate bowl and dip the sukiyaki meat in it and have it with some rice. There are others who like to just break the yolk within the bowl of noodles and dip it from there and slurp it along with the ramen. After finishing the ramen, some locals like to dump rice into the soup and devour everything up until the last drop. No matter which way you pick on how to eat your bowl of Tokushima ramen, it will still taste good. If you are a ramen fan and love to try local ramen then this is for you to try. Even if you are not that interested in eating ramen I still highly recommend this dish because it is really different from all the ramens you might have tried in your life!
