There are so many schools offering their unique ramen noodles in Japan such as 醤油系 Shoyu-kei ( soy sauce flavored soup school, 味噌系 Miso-kei ( Miso flavored soup school), 豚骨系 Tonkotsu-kei (pork bone soup school) , 塩系 Shio-kei, ( salt flavor based soup school), 家系 Ie-kei ( pork bone and chicken bone mixed soup ) and 二郎系 Jiro-kei ( somewhat unique and new type of heavy fat ramen ) and so on.
二郎系 Jiro-kei is tonkotsu broth with shoyu added, but the broth is more like a thinner (but very rich) pork gravy and in most branches it has a large amount of suspended 脂 Abura ( fat ).
The noodles are typically very thick and chewy and the pork is a very rough cut, usually from the tenderloin and occasionally will be mostly fat.
Piles of vegetables, usually cabbage or moyashi (bean sprouts) are put on the ramen as toppings.
You can add large amount of chopped garlic if you want.
ラーメン二郎 ( Ramen Jiro ) is the origin of Jiro ramen school.
Ramen Jiro is certainly not for those who are health conscious, and those of weaker constitutions can feel a bit queasy after eating there for the first time, especially if they force themselves to finish the whole bowls.
The overall taste is not like any other ramen available in Japan.
I tried Ramen Jiro sometimes and it was O.K.
However, it didn't fit my taste.
But, I found crazy but tasty mountain of Jiro school ramen in Sapporo.
It is Buta-King, school of Jiro-ramen restaurant.
I visited Buta-King in Ebetsu.
They offer Miso flavored soup ramen.
Jiro school is basically soy sauce flavored but this is Miso.
I was surprised at first.
Taste and its looks are fantastic!
I took 1 hour to finish up the bowl because I recklessly ordered the biggest amount of Ramen.
This is just crazy but worth trying because Jiro school in Sapporo is delicious.
The main restaurant is located at eastern suburb of Sapporo but branch restaurant is located at center of the city.
They also offer soy sauce, miso, salt, curry spicy chill based ramens.
My favorite is Miso based soup ramen.
You can add extra vegetables ( 増し Mashi ) for fee but if you need some more extra vegetables ( 増し増し Mashi Mashi ) you have to pay extra charges ( around 100 JPY )
