    Spicy Miso is my favorite as it has the most complex flavors than just shoyu, shio, or misplaced. Order the combo if you are hungry and want something other than just noodle and soup!

    Salt tonkotsu ramen is better than spicy one. Ramen Yamadaya is better.

    Thought the Toriniku ramen's broth was too salty. Go for the spicy miso instead.

    My own personal recommendation is the Salt (Shio) Ramen with Toroniku (pork). MAGICAL!

    Be wary of the wait. Get the miso pork ramen. The Set orders aren't really worth it unless you really like the rice. The ramen is the highlight.
