Ganso Nagahamaya

It was the first full day of my brother's and my Fukuoka adventure, so we had to choose a ramen shop to hit up. The previous time I went to Fukuoka I had somehow missed Nagahama, so with that in mind we set out for the classic Ganso Nagahamaya first thing.

I've had a lot of wacky types of ramen, or interesting takes on classic styles of ramen, but Ganso Nagahamaya was the exact opposite of those. An old-school shop with vending machines with just one thing to order: ramen. At an absurdly cheap 400 yen, how can you go wrong?

The Bowl
This bowl was even lighter than the bowl I had at the food stall the previous night. The broth was very light; it was practically just oil meant to flavor the noodles. The noodles were thin and hard like I've grown to expect in Fukuoka tonkotsu. The thin slices of chashu were very juicy. I plowed through my noodles but drinking all of the oil-like broth would have been ill-advised at best, and suicide at worst.

Would I Go Again?
It was good, I'd like to try it again.

Should You Go?
It's an original, and it's super cheap!
