There is one shop in the Gifu region that has reigned supreme three years in a row now, selling a pretty unique ramen. Finally, I had an opportunity to try it out myself, and as a ramen fan, I can testify that the quality and the hype are completely legitimate.

As delicious as Japanese cuisines are, fans of the spicy often find the hotness lacking from the food in this country. When foods and snacks are advertised as “extremely spicy”, most of the time it gives nothing more than a tinkle on the tongue for those used to the peppers. Not to mention, Japan tends to use only chilli pepper and miss out on the tastes offered by other species of peppers.

A popular Japanese food, Ramen, is found in shops at every street corner in Japan. Mostly ramen is prepared in a broth that uses pork meat and broth from it, while in some shops chicken is often used. For Muslim tourists in Japan it is most unlikely to experience the flavours of a bowl of conventional Japanese ramen. Narita-ya and Ayam-ya are two Japanese halal ramen restaurants that serve delicious bowls of ramen, worth a try.

When you order tsukemen (つけ麺), two bowls will show up in front of you: noodles and toppings in a large bowl, and rich hot soup in a smaller bowl. First time eaters might be confused, and I have heard stories of customers pouring the entire bowl of soup onto the noodles, but the two bowls are meant to be separated, and their powers combine when you pick up some noodles, dip them into the soup and slurp them up.
