I could see why people love this place. Unlike other ramen places, they have variety to choose from :)
I like this place but it's not my #1. Their broth is full of flavor and the price is reasonable for the amount you get. I like the spicy ramen :) Noodles are a lil thick for me (I prefer thin noodles). It's pretty oily.

Santouka Ramen doesn't even have a sign in English but it's easy to spot. Just go inside the Mitsuwa food court and look for the only restaurant that always has a line. It's right next to the takoyaki place.
They sell 4 kinds of ramen and I believe 5 kinds of simple rice dishes. You can do the combo by picking the type of ramen and rice dish you want. The combo also comes with the marinated egg.
I had the spicy miso chashu ramen and the pork rice. My ramen was excellent. The broth is thick and flavorful. It came with one piece of chashu pork and some bamboos. Both of those things are great. The marinated egg is also delicious.
The rice was a little bit disappointing. Although it's not bad, it was just a small bowl of plain rice with pieces of boiled pork belly. The flavor was average at best. I would just order a medium bowl of ramen next time and skip the rice.
The wait can be a little long to order and to get your food depending on the line.

Santouka Ramen soup, mmm.
The broth is definitely flavorful and tasty. But Santouka Ramen isn't going to get 5 stars out of me because I'm not a big fan of their noodles. Their noodles are rather thick and hard for ramen noodles. I'm more of a chijire men fan (squiggly noodles) that are usually used for ramen like shin ramen. It seems like tonkotsu/heavy flavored broth are always paired with straight egg noodle ish ramen noodles but I could never fully enjoy it. But like I said, I really enjoy their broth and that's hard to nail. Props to you, Santouka!
Santouka, please have other noodle options in the future!
