A favorite chain of Nagasaki ramen

In Japan, each region has own specialized ramen and Nagasaki (長崎)'s ramen is called as "champon (ちゃんぽん)" whose meaning is "mixed." The feature of champon is  soup made with chicken and pork bones and mixed ingredients such as much vegetables, meat, fish cake and seafood put on ramen.

We have a chain ramen restaurant specializing for champon. It is "Ringerhut (リンガーハット)." You can see Ringerhut in most part of Japan. Even in Ginza, a posh shopping district in Tokyo, you can find it. Nowadays they also have branches in the US, Thailand and Taiwan. 

In Ringerhut, most items costs less than JPY500. If you have JPY1,000, you can be more than full. In spite of the price, the taste is good. Their champon is addictive taste. Maybe mixed ingredients are well functioned for the rich and complex flavor. For reasonable meal both on price and taste, the champon of Ringerhut might be an option. My rating is 3.2 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
