It had really been a long time since I had been to Ippudo. After a very filling yakitori, one of my friends insisted we end the night on ramen. She was from Fukuoka, and representing her hometown well, she insisted we go to a tonkotsu shop. The closest one was Ippudo, but my eye was not on the tonkotsu, but rather the limited time miso ramen. How would this compare to all of the Sapporo ramen I had recently eaten?

The Bowl
What could a miso bowl by Ippudo be like? As any Ippudo ramen would be, it was very porky, oily, and rich. It almost tasted like a mix of tonkotsu and miso; different from the classic Sapporo style, but not straight tonkotsu either. Either way it was pretty good. The kara-miso added a spicy kick, and the sesame oil provided some nice flavors as well.


Would I Go Again?
I might, but the miso ramen is over anyway.


Should You Go?
It's too late.
