Just a reminder to all ramen fans! Pork bone broth is "TONKOTSU", NOT "TONKATSU". TonkAtsu is breaded deep fried port cutlet, not pork bone broth!!
Hint: If a server says Tonkatsu Ramen at a restaurant, don't expect authentic ramen. Ton = Pork🐷, kotsu = Bone🍖

Sumitani - Akita City, Akita 🇯🇵 すみたに - 秋田県秋田市

I arrived in Japan today, will be here for a couple months.
My first ramen after arrival was Sumitani! Ramen shop right across from Akita Station, they specialize in spicy ramen.
 I ordered the medium 3x spicy (800 Yen) which had good amount of spiciness for me. They have up to 100x spicy (1800 Yen)😖
 Very nice firm medium noodles. Noodles itself tasted good.
Red soup  赤いスープ
 Ticket machine
 They offer 3 types of ramen, from left to right, Ankake-men (non-spicy), Kara-men and Nira-men
