Tonkotsu Ramen list

Anyone could recommend me their best tonkotsu ramen around Minato area? If there's any in other part of the city i would also welcome the suggestion. I need something thicker than Ikkudo's. Thank you in advance

That's quite specific. Not everyone is a fan of ramen; they might not be fond of tonkotsu ramen; they might not like what is available in Tokyo or Minato Ward. People have different preferences and ideas on what is best.

I'd have to remind you that Tonkotsu is not a regional product of Tokyo (or, that many consider that Tokyoites are bad at cooking, as mass produce and chains destroy everything. Plus, ramen is essentially fast junk food; some ramen lovers here might deny it, but I think people should look at the reality and love fast junk food as they are).

Hello ShibaInuGuide ( what a cute nickname!)

Thank you so much for your insights. Very quick one too. Also thanks for letting me know ramen nature in Tokyo, i think that adds up to my prior info i gather whenever i watched Ramen Walker, a Japanese variety show playing on my local cable, they always enlist ramen shops outside Tokyo, i once saw their top 30 ramen list in Hokkaido, and i always wonder why they rarely visit ramen in Tokyo..

As you would know, ramen developed in different ways with regional originality. Hokkaido has miso and butter ramen; Kyushu - tonkotsu ramen; Tokyo - Shoyu (soy sauce) ramen; Yokohama - Seabura (back oil) ramen. There are Kitakata ramen, Takayama ramen, Wakayama ramen, Tenri ramen, etc.

What is good really depends on people.

and my favorite style, tokushima style...which I guess is technically tonkotsu base broth.
