Ramen from hell... a shop from heaven?

Frequented by some of the most famous K1 fighter champs?

The spice levels are named after pachinko lingo? Renchan!

Is it any good?

Great! I asked what all the fighters order, and of course it's the hell ramen. The medium spice level was good. The aforementioned renchan spice level would probably be just right.

Jigoku uses a tonkotsu base, then layers on the spices. It's very different than tantanmen or spicy miso, which are more common.

Free desert! The creamy pudding takes away the lingering spice when you are ready to go. Nice touch!

If you are brave, go for the max.
