Sora News 24 reporter, Ahiru Neko, has been willing to queue since 08.50 am even though the restaurant only opened at 11.00 pm. He didn’t want to miss the opportunity to taste this unique ramen, even though he had to wait about 2 hours in the midst of super cold weather.
Neko was the first to line up and then a long line appeared around 10.30. Luckily, he and 4 people in the queue behind him were able to taste Cho Kotteri Ramen.
The ramen sauce looks cloudy brown and a bit oily. Ramen comes with sliced scallions. The ramen soup was so thick, it was hard for Neko to tell whether the broth was really liquid or solid?
The ramen soup is made with chicken broth, which is the mainstay of Tenka Ippin’s menu. “The texture is not only thick, but very thick,” wrote Neko describing the Cho Kotteri Ramen sauce.

Although this ramen soup is much thicker than usual, Neko admits that the taste is delicious so it’s worth a try. “The taste is not too strong, in contrast to the extreme texture of the broth,” he said.
