Otaru is a town in Hokkaido near Sapporo that has its own ramen style. Not being a ramen connoisseur, I am not really sure how it differs from other ramen dishes. Ramen is basically a bowl of thin noodles in a soup. Here, I had chashu shio Otaru ramen, which means I had pork cooked in soy sauce as a kind of topping. Nice and salty. Lovely!
