Tomonori Takahashi: Our Cha Cha Cha ramen has a great combination of thick, rich pork Tonkotsu broth, soy sauce, and LOTS of raw garlic. Once I start slurping, I can’t stop! An insider tip for ordering at JINYA (a secret menu item): If you aren’t satisfied with one bowl, you can ask for a second serving of noodles—especially if you still have plenty of broth left. Just ask your server for “Kaedama”, meaning “another bowl” in Japanese, and you’ll have freshly cooked noodles placed into your existing bowl.
