Ryukishi RIZE is one of the most popular ramen restaurants in Namba.

They offer a wide variety of dishes including “Salt ramen” and “Tori-taitan salt ramen.”

They also have seasonal ramen, so you can enjoy different kinds of ramen depending on the season.

The must eat item is “Tori-taitan salt ramen”, which is thick white soup made with chicken.(830 yen)

The soup has a white, milky look,and it tastes very rich and creamy like a potage.

The thick noodles are suitable for this rich creamy chicken soup.

I highly recommend this restaurant if you like rich,creamy ramen.
