    Wakayama Pref. Wakayamashi Junibanchou 87 Le Chateau Yodocho 1F
    The second location of the popular Ramen Marui situated in Nakanoshima, Wakyama City, the Juniban-cho shop is just a 10 minute walk from Wakayamashi Station. Making use of select ingredients such as chashu pork fillets made from Kagoshima Sanmi-ton pork, used in high class inns, the shop is particularly famous for using ryokuho kuronegi green onions, a type of kujonegi onion. The springy homemade noodles, tonkotsu broth slow-stewed over a two day period, and heaping helping of chopped spring onions whets the appetite. The shop also offers a full lunch weekday set menu; the half-sized ramen and rice set is particularly popular with women.

    Good taste ramen, a plenty of green onions make it more delicious. Regrettably I prefer more hard noodle.

    Wakayama Pref. Wakayamashi Fukumachi 12
    This ramen restaurant is known as the representative of Wakayama ramen and is so popular you will always find a long line at peak times. This long-established restaurant has kept the taste of its Yamatame Ramen since its founding in 1953. Their special Chuka Soba (Chinese noodles) has a rich taste with thick noodles in pork soy sauce broth. The noodles soak up the taste when they’re put in the broth and warm up. The counter seating makes it very easy for single patrons to enter. The nearest train station is Wakayama City Station.

    Its one one the most famous ramen shops in Wakayama. Typical Wakayama style thick soup. Ramen noodles were firm and chewy. Its crowded but worth the wait.

    Wakayama Pref. Wakayamashi Honmachi 1-1 Sankei Kyobashi Building Underground 1F
    "This ramen shop is at Temari Square in Honmachi, Wakayama City. Their broth made with pork and chicken bones, boned pork rib called “chashu"" simmered for a long time with their secret soy sauce at low temperature, and a nicely sweet seasoning known as “kaeshi"" are all superb. These and fine al dente noodles go into their Wakayama style “Kotaro Ramen"" with its moderately rich pork bone soy sauce broth. You can also try their soy sauce ramen for a lighter flavor. They've been featured in a variety of media, including on a popular Thai television program."

    The restaurant is close do my hotel and recommended by receptionist. We enjoy ramen and sushi served on bambus :)

    Wakayama Pref. Wakayamashi Kemi 1130-3
    This ramen restaurant in Kemi, Wakayama City, Wakayama, began as a food stand in front of the garage of the streetcar. This famous store has kept the traditional taste of Chinese soba noodles for over half a century. This ramen is outstanding with a light taste but thick soy sauce and pork broth combined with their straight hand-made noodles. Many are fans of their large pork thigh chashu. Their side menu also offers soft gyoza dumplings and more.

    和歌山ラーメン主流2派のうち、ややマイナーではあるが、車庫前系の和歌山ラーメン。今なら和歌山ブラックですかね(笑)オーソドックスながら美味しいので、車庫前系食べたいとなれば、候補に挙がるひとつですね!

    Wakayama Pref. Aridagunaridagawachou Tenma 428
    This popular ramen shop has been featured in a variety of media. Taking a page from the playbooks of popular Japanese restaurants, their ramen's broth and trimmings feature an array of local ingredients. The shop's soy sauce ramen comes recommended. It features broth made of dried niboshi from iwashi sardines, mackerel, and saury blended with Wakayama-made soy sauce and topped with Umedori chashu pork. They have lots of other kinds of ramen to choose from too. These include their Tokuno ramen has a scrumptious broth that's thick as potage, and their Gekko Japanese Style Tonkotsu ramen has a light yet sophisticated flavor. They also have three kinds of tsukemen dipping ramen. You can choose the quantity of the noodles.

    有田川にある人気ラーメン店です。 いつもつけ麺を食べてしまいます。 値段が上がっており、また、麺量の選択肢が減り残念でしたが、美味しいです。

    Wakayama Pref. Wakayamashi Saikamachi 120
    You’ll find this ramen shop in Saika Town, Wakayama City, Wakayama Prefecture. It is a longstanding shop that opened in 1958 as a street stall. The “chuka-soba” (Chinese noodles) use a soy sauce-based broth that is both rich and has a pleasant aftertaste, and the medium-thickness noodles complement it perfectly. The “char siu ramen,” another popular option, has so many roast pork fillets that you can’t see the noodles. The shop is designed like a cafe and is inviting for women as well. “Haya-nare sushi,” a Kishu specialty, and rice balls are placed on the table; you self-report the fee at checkout.

    口コミで、まずまずだったので行ってみた。スープは普通。麺、苦手。おそらく、二度と行くことはないだろう。店内、喫煙可なので、即刻やめさせた方がいい。
