TONCHIN is one of the ramen shops, which made TOKYO TONKOTSU (Tokyo Pork Bone Broth Ramen) famous. Whenever the ramen category, Tonkotsu Ramen was used in the past, it meant Kyushu or Hakata style ramen, where the soup is usually made out of pork bones only, white and milky. Tokyo Shoyu Tonkotsu uses other ingredients with pork bone such as chicken, vegetables, but the soup is white and milky like Tonkotsu ramen.
