The art of eating ramen noodle??

This is a counter of a ramen shop and each seat is separated by wooden plates from the others to concentrate on appreciating the taste of this noodle, though it sounds quite funny and joking:-))



This is the noodle the shop serves and it is called Tonkotsu ramen, one of popular tastes in Japanese ramen, such as Miso ramen, soy sauce ramen. The soup is mainly made of the bone of pigs and taste better!!



To eat the ramen, we need to buy a ticket by a vending machine installed in front of the shop. Then, we enter the shop and just put them on the counter. The clerks get this ticket and serve food you ordered.

This shop is automatic-oriented and such style is still now very rare. But in the near future, robots will work at some restaurants to make sushi in Tokyo...

Japan is way out ahead of all other countries in many things, and food delivery is one of them. I like noodles and would walk a mile to get it when I was in Japan. Nice photograph and interesting post.

Thanks for the comments:-))

abraxis,
This shop is Ichiran(一蘭) in Roppongi. If you really want to enjoy Hakata Ramen, it it better to go to Hakara not Tokyo. Tokyo has actually less good Hakara Ramen shops and more expensive than in Hakata.
