Our signature bowl ‘Butao’ is a tonkotsu ramen. Tonkotsu ramen is a creamy pork-bone soup ramen typical in Kyushu, Japan’s southern-most island, but found all over Japan nowadays. For bringing the most authentic Japanese Ramen to Hong Kong ramen lovers, we’ve invited two Japanese consultants to manage and keep the quality and services same as Japan does.
