Funabashi sauce ramen

One to try in Funabashi, Chiba

Sauce ramen comes in at number 4 after the main 3 three ramen flavors of shio (salt), shoyu (soy sauce) and miso. Originating in Funabashi City in Chiba Prefecture after WWII, Funabashi sauce ramen has recently been revived as a local cuisine. The toppings of red pickled ginger, cabbage, bean sprouts and seaweed flakes - ingredients more likely found in fried yakisoba noodles - are what sets sauce ramen apart from other types of ramen. The thin noodles are not fried like yakisoba, however, they are boiled as per other types of ramen. “Dairen”, a restaurant close to Funabashi station on the Keisei line, is a gem that will serve you sauce ramen. They serve the ramen with ham which has been crumbed and fried like a pork chop, and it goes perfectly with the sauce flavor of the ramen soup.
