Delicious ramen in a healthy chicken broth

Ittetsu, a new shop specializing in ramen, is located outside the gate for the U.S. Naval Hospital at Camp Foster. The signature item here is the ramen soup – 100 percent chicken-based paitang, a soup originating in China and now popular in Japan for use with noodles. This savory chicken broth is healthier than pork bone stock and what’s more, is rich in collagen, an excellent beauty aid. They serve ramen only in chicken stock, so no pork or beef broth here. This addictive paitang ramen has captivated the locals' taste buds and has been popular especially with female customers since the shop’s opening in February.

There are three types of noodles of varying thickness depending on the customer’s choice of soup. Everything is prepared in the restaurant including the chili oil and spices and the supremely tender, slow-braised roast chicken served as the main topping. And don’t forget the excellent side order of crisply fried chicken and the children’s meal.

Visit Ittetsu, located near the Futenma Shrine on Route 81, and enjoy your ramen to the very last bite.
