Kanza Ramen (神山 ラーメン) Kanda
I think this place deserves its own post. Kanza opened 1-2 months ago, about 5min from Kanda station.
The pork is quite soft, cooked in a salamander along the back wall. The chashu-men usually comes with 4 extremely hefty chunks and the noodles are the thick cut variety, but not housemade.
I recommend this to lovers of fatty, porky ramen. I really really like it.
@kamiosaki I defer to your experience since I don't know ramen chains at all. The pork I had was definitely heavily grilled to finish it off, so their kakuni might be a different experience altogether. I don't know how I feel about chains these days, but it seems to be different with ramen, and they only have 8 shops so...
@squirrel, I'm always up for lunch as long as it's someplace new...no, I could make an exception. My gmail address is eoitwj@...
