2, This is the origin of garlic ramen! Specialty of Satsumakko Ramen

A ramen in Satsumakko ramen

Satsumakko "origin of garlic ramen".
We introduce the ramen which is carefully made with never ending efforts.

Specialty of Satsumakko garlic ramen

The soup of Satsumakko garlic ramen is its original, and in short it can be described as "light pork broth" taste. The noodles are "curly" which holds the soup and carefully selected to be natural food without additive. The roast pork is sliced thickly but tender, and those are essences which made this ramen shop to keep unchanged favorite popular ramen.

Let's see the specialty of Satsumakko garlic ramen one by one.


First, the noodles are "natural" and "curly" which hold the soup well. Then Satsumakko's traditional "soup" is made from "pork bones" and "chicken bones" base and often described as "light pork broth" taste.

In addition, please check "roast pork" which the bar is proud of.

The combination of roast pork and soup carefully made is marvelous. The roast pork has rich taste and is sliced in thick, while the soup is light pork broth taste, so the taste of roast pork still remains and tender and spreads in your mouth.

But the secret is not only this one.

We can not forget "garlic" as the ramen is called garlic ramen. You can choose "with" garlic or "without" garlic as you want. If you choose "with" garlic, you will see finely sliced raw garlic on the bottom of the bowl, and it highlights the taste of the soup.

And the garlic flavor is strong, too. :)

If you don't want too strong garlic flavor, you can order "without" garlic of course, which is good enough. But if there is a chance, we would recommend to try the ramen with garlic at least once!

Another popular plate in Satsumakko! What is "Moriawase (Assorted plate)"?

Besides ramen, "moriawase (Assorted plate)" of roast pork slices on plate which is boast of the shop is recommended! Before having ramen, why don't you enjoy the combination of beer and the roast pork plate, which are also specialty of "Satsumakko".


The thick, tender and well-seasoned roast pork, impregnated good taste, melts and the umami (palatability) of the meat bursts in your mouth! Many visitors come here only for the roast pork, so a simple plate with roast pork slices, called "Moriawase (Assorted plate)" is also popular!


This is "Moriawase (varied collection)".
A numerous thick slices of roast pork, kimchi and seasoned soybean sprouts.


And more popular menu is "Moriawase set", which combines "Moriawase (Assorted)" plate with "rice" and "soup".

Satsumakko Ramen is a ramen shop, but many people order "Moriawase set" without ordering ramen. So please do not hesitate to try it.

Put the palatable roast pork on steamed white rice and bring them to your mouth...
I become hungry even imagining the situation. :)

As we have seen, there are a plenty of unique specialty which comes from the pride of a place of origin in Satsumakko. I guess those who do not live in Osaka would not have been here, so please visit and try the delicious ramen.
