Ramen, soup soy-based
Why locals love it
Takumi Nine is the sister restaurant of a ramen shop in Düsseldorf. The flagship ramen at Takumi Nine are the Sapporo style bowls (Nine Sapporo Shoyu and Nine Sapporo Miso), two enormous and rich ramen creations served with sliced chicken, pork lard and a lot of condiments like sprouts and vegetables. It comes at a price: 11-15€ per bowl.
Why you should visit it
The menu at Takumi Nine is pretty substantial and offers 16 different bowls of ramen along with a number of side dishes and Japanese curries. The soups at Takumi Nine are, unlike most other Berlin ramen shops, not based on a Tonkotsu (pork bone broth) but on Miso (miso paste) and Shoyu (soy sauce).
It's a tiny place, plan carefully and maybe take waiting into account. Definitely check out the neighborhood.
