Toyama Black Shoyu Ramen

Toyama is known for its jet-black ramen!

As you'd expect, the black colored soy sauce (shoyu) seasoning is bold, salty and a little sweet. This regional ramen was meant be a source of fuel for blue collar workers in Toyama. A nice bonus is the packet of spicy pepper that charges the broth. Add as much of this as you like!
