Miso Tonkotsu Special, 16,50€

The noodles are thin and straight like Hakata style. They could have been harder and didn’t totally convince me. The topings are on good level. Chashu is not too fatty but soft. The soup is tasty and creamy and definately a great one. The miso taste isn’t that strong. Occassionaly it is a a bit spicy.
Tomato, avacado and whole garlic make a special unordinary taste. It’s tasty, but personally I didn’t like it. For me avacado and tomato doesn’t go so well with a Tonkotsu broth. 

But all in all a very tasty ramen and definately always worth eating when being in or around Frankfurt. 

I would rate the soup itself as one of the best so far in Germany at all. Unfortunately the noodles didn’t convince me completely.

Get out of Frankfurt Main Station at North Exit and follow the big road along the tram in North direction. Take a left into Wilhelm-Hauff-Straße. Ramen Jun is then located on the right side.

Be aware and careful around Frankfurt Main Station. This area is a bit, let’s say wired.
