I take all recommendations seriously. And when fellow Yahoo! Japan Ramen Ambassador Anna suggested this as her #1 in Nagasaki, I made sure to go.
Did Always name their restaurant with a glimpse of the future? Because if I lived in Nagasaki, I would always be going! (to this part of town because this is where all the ramen shops seem to be)
Tonkotsu soup (is there any other in Kyushu?) with all the trimmings.
The egg is local Nagasaki grown. The egg is good.
I had just eaten a few minutes before this bowl, so I didn't get the house special, aptly named Always Ramen. It looked great, though, with five pieces of their excellent chashu and a mound of julienned carrot.
Also on the menu is a lemon ramen with おすすめ printed next to it.
Expect a line.
