Opened in Naka-cho in 1953. After suffering damage from the 1960 Chile earthquake and tsunami, it reopened its doors in the central Omachi district and developed a following as a Chinese restaurant, before being damaged once more in the earthquake and tsunami of 2011. It operated out of a temporarily constructed shopping unit for a short while, then fully reopened within the small-scale shopping facility “Town Port Omachi” in December 2014.
The large roast pork slices, bamboo shoots and seaweed topping Dairen’s Kamaishi Ramen are all part of a recipe that has been handed down for generations. The popular “Rugger Ramen” contains ample vegetables and a “rugby ball-shaped” boiled egg in a spicy miso soup, and allows customers to choose their preferred noodles from the “Forwards” (thick) to “Backs” (thin) range.
