Tangy ramen showers taste buds

Date Posted: 2012-07-13

Ramen Maruyoshi is both special and different, thanks to a plethora of varied flavors, and that’s before we ever get to the noodles.

Pork bones, chicken bones, fish and shellfish all go into the making of the ramen’s soup base, a creation that provides the strong flavor of the pork, but lightened by the flavors of chicken bones stock, with the fish and shellfish putting into place a tantalizing touch. It’s all a creation of Ramen Maruyoshi, a noodle restaurant in Futenma district of Ginowan city.

The noodles are thick and satisfying making the ramen filling. The Maruyoshi ramen offers special toppings such as roasted pork, soft-boiled salty egg and more. Of course the ramen’s soup is the triple stock soup, so, satisfaction of taste and volume is guaranteed. A bowl of Maruyoshi ramen costs ¥750.

On the other hand, the restaurant also prides itself for Tsukemen noodles. They’re similar to ramen, but in tsukemen, noodles and soup are served separately. To eat, take the noodles and dip into the thick broth, and savor the taste. A tsukemen meal costs ¥800.

One other recommendation is for Rahjanmen and Rahjan Tsukemen. Both Rahjanmen and Rahjan Tsukemen use shrimp chili oil and Gouchujang, so the ramen and Tsukemen are called “Spicy Hot Ramen” by foreign customers because the taste is hot. Rahjan Tsukemen’s noodle is cold. Owner Taiyo Tsukayama said “Cold noodles match the hot spicy soup.”

Rahjanmen and Rahjan Tsukemen are both ¥700 each. For an extra charge, you can go for the large bowl of noodles. Large serving is ¥100 more, an extra large serving is ¥150 and the mega large serving is ¥200. Extra large servings and mega large servings are offered only with Tsukemen menus. Mega large servings double the noodle!

Maruyoshi has a lot of side dishes such as Gyoza, and donburi style meals. Maruyoshi’s Gyoza has really juicy gravy and crispy skin. When bitten the juicy gravy will flow and flavor of vegetables and pork will spread in your mouth.

For the donburi-style side menu, Tsukayama recommends “garlic butter chicken-don” as a new menu item or chopped-up roast pork on rice.

The donburi-style side orders cost ¥300 as individual dishes, and if you order the dish with ramen or Tsukemen as a set, the treat costs only ¥220. Extra toppings include soft-boiled salty egg, roasted pork and vegetables.

From 5 p.m., Maruyoshi offers an evening drink set that consists of a serving of gyoza and a beer for ¥650,

Ramen Maruyoshi is open from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. ~ 9 p.m. on weekdays, and 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends. It is closed on Tuesdays. An English menu and English speaking staff are available.

To get to Ramen Maruyoshi from Camp Foster go towards MCAS Futenma back gate but turn right at the traffic light just before the Futenma fence. Then turn right at the second corner, and Ramen Maruyoshi is on the right, while a coin laundry is on the left. Ramen Maruyoshi has no parking of its own, but there is a public parking lot just across the corner that costs only ¥200 to park for a whole day.
