When looking through this year's issue of Ramen Walker when it first came out, a few specific bowls caught my eye. Some I've been to, some are far, but some are in a convenient enough location that I can walk there on my way home from work. Hanabusa is located near Sakaisuji Honmachi Station, right in the center of the city. Unlike wackier ramen shops I've been to recently, Hanabusa offers a classic if fish-filled chuka soba.


The Bowl
The bowl was a solid shoyu ramen, with a bit of essence of fish making it stand out more than other shoyu. The square noodles went down easy, but the soup was a bit too thin to take advantage of the noodles' sponginess. On the other hand, the big piece of chashu was dark and juicy, and a wonderful counter to the light ramen. My main complaint is that the flavor wore thin towards the end, leaving me wanting something small to change it up a bit.


Would I Go Again?


Should You Go?
It's not a bad place for the area, but if you're looking for this kind of ramen I would recommend Rakunijin first.
