Shio Ramen at Ramen Yamadaya in Culver City

I’m really a big fan of miso and tonkotsu based broths. For me I’m usually looking something that is rich and flavorful. I think miso and tonkostsu cover both of those requirements.  On this particular visit I was interested in trying something that I normally don’t order.

I went with the shio ramen and wasn’t disappointed. It’s much lighter, but it was still flavorful and I felt refreshed afterwards.  The premium shio is a light chicken broth mixed with a salt base sauce. It comes with bamboo shoots, white scallion, marinated egg, braised pork, spinach, dried seaweed, and shrimp dumpling.

My wife ordered the tonkotsu kotteri.  You can see that black garlic oil.
