Regular readers of Friends in Ramen will remember a few months ago when I visited the Ramen Gekijo.  Well, one of the shops that used to be in the rotating "ramen theater" succeeded and started its own shop, not too far away from the Gekijo.

Aozora offers four different kinds of ramen: Hakata-style tonkotsu, Shin-Nara ramen, Tokyo tonkotsu tsukemen, and Naniwa white shoyu ramen.  I was really curious about the Shin-Nara or Naniwa ramen, but all the signs recommended the standard Hakata tonkotsu bowl, so that's what I went with.

The Bowl
A classic Hakata-style tonkotsu, through and through.  Cloudy and creamy pork broth, long and thin noodles, though a bit softer than I would have liked.  The toppings were OK, and the chashu was decent, but nothing special.

Would I Go Again?
It's not too far out of the way, and I'm curious about the other bowls, so maybe.

Should You Go?
The bowl was solid, but there are so many other tonkotsu bowls you can choose from, you don't need to.
