Ramen Taro

My ramen trips to Kyoto had come to an end, but that doesn't mean I didn't have time for other places.  My friends and I were planning on going to Shiga, but since those plans were rained out we went to Kobe instead.  After a few mandatory snacks in Chinatown, we tried a ramen shop I found in Ramen Walker.

The Bowl
Tonkotsu shoyu bowls have a special ability to weigh me down and make me feel bloated after eating them.  That's not to say that it's bad, but Taro lived up to its legacy with a very porky, murky broth.  The noodles, on the other hand, were thin and very light.  The egg and normal chashu were decent, but the best part of the bowl by far was the kakuni.  It was tender and juicy; I could have eaten just that and I would have been happy.

Would I Go Again?
It's a bit out of the way so I probably won't find myself there again.

Should You Go?
If you're looking for ramen in Kobe, this is a solid place.  Make sure to get some of the kakuni.
