Round 1 of Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum: Casa Luca Milano

casa-luca-milano-1Ah…the first stop of the ramen madness! This one hails from Milan as its name here suggests. Specializing in Tonkotsu Ramen, let’s see how this fares to other ramens here.

casa-luca-milano-mini-soy-sauce-taste-vegetarian-ramen-1I love how they have this option! It’s perfect for vegetarians and nonvegetarians. The broth was different as it was just a mix of soy sauce. The overall taste was slightly on the sweet side.

It might as well have been a pasta dish or a dry noodle dish. I still enjoyed this nonetheless. Same as with a spicy ramen, this gave me a bit of a cold so yeah, it was  spicy! It’s best to mix this well all in to get the full flavor.

Round 1 is a sure win! Shall we keep this up in Round 2? 😉
