Man I’ve been writing about ramen a lot. I’m so hungry. It’s time to write about another great bowl I had earlier this month. It’s Ramen Nagi’s Kuro ramen.  And Kuro is such an appropriate name for this black, black dish. At first I thought it would be some kind of squid ink ramen, because it was so black!


But it’s really just some garlic style ramen like you get from all the kuro ramens like the ones from Ramen Kuroda or Ikkoryu Fukuoka. However, of all the kuro ramens I have tasted, this is definitely the best.

The sauce was unbelievably thick — and tastes strongly of garlic and soy sauce. In addition there is a huge golfball-sized block of darkness in the middle as you can see above. This is the unholy secret sauce that the rest of the bowl is made of, only in concentrated killer form. If you eat and partake of it, you will fall into the outer depths of Hades and soar through the dark night into the infinite reaches of the cosmos. Yes, it’s that nasty!

I’m not entirely sure what it’s made of, but it’s probably some kind of pork lard mixed with sugar and soy sauce and… something else. I am not so sure what, but it’s good stuff.  Perhaps my only real problem with the bowl was the noodles. They were thin, stringy, and not really nice to chew or fun to eat. Easy to slurp, but not great to eat. Still, the broth more than made up for it.

Overall, the bowl I had at Ramen Nagi was great, great and I would eat again.
