ちょもらん麺 Chomoranmen

Chomoranmen was the second ramen shop I visited during my four days in Nagoya. That means I ate ramen twice in four days in August. But it was a cool (for August) and very rainy day, so ramen was a good choice.

01 Exterior

This place is opposite Nagoya TV Tower, just outside of exit 8B of Sakaemachi Station, but I walked there from my hotel.

I was greeted by a young, friendly Nepalese staff who recommended the shop specialty, miso ramen. I sat at the counter, behind which a large TV showed a variety program. There were four bookshelves full of manga in the corner. A few customers came and went while I was there, but it wasn’t busy.

05 Ramen

The service was quick. I received my ramen about a minute after sitting down. It was topped with one slice of pork, some boiled cabbage and a mountain of bean sprouts.

06 Soup

It was a thick, brown and flavourful soup with some spice and a thin layer of oil. It was excellent. The noodles were also very good — thick, firm and chewy. Notice how the soup just clings to them.

07 Noodles

This was a great bowl of ramen. It’s always nice to have a huge portion of bean sprouts and cabbage. And the soup was very filling, which is typical of miso ramen.
