丸三 (Marusan in Wakayama)

中華そば 丸三


I asked my Wakayama Ramen Taxi driver to take me to his favorite shop. Marusan is a local spot a short drive out of town. Typical tonkotsu shoyu style, but in this case a little bit lighter than other shops.

Many shops in Wakayama have a 丸, maru, in the name. One of the original Wakayama ramen shops was called Marutaka, and shops since then have paid homage. The original dates back to the 1940s.

I enjoyed this shop, but unless you drive or take the Ramen Taxi, it is a trek.


This was part of a trip I took to Wakayama to check out the ramen taxi.

The entire writeup is here:

Huge thanks to My Secret Wakayama for the opportunity.
