Introduced here is “Tanta Ramen,” a ramen restaurant that continues to be loved by the locals of Kobe City. Its presence has the warmth of a house off the scale of a modern city, and the old-fashioned diner style that everyone once felt nostalgic for is exactly right for a drink before going home after work.
This time, we will report on Tanta Ramen, which serves excellent ramen while retaining that old-fashioned atmosphere.
The store is located in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture
Tanta Ramen” is quietly located at 135-3 Tamatsu-cho residence, Nishi-ku, Kobe City. The surrounding area is a quiet residential area, with ordinary houses next door. At first glance, this ramen store, loved by the locals and seemingly quietly ticking away the days, may look like just another house.
Inside the store is a retro store with an L-shaped counter that gives off the atmosphere of a Showa-era ramen shop. The restaurant has a retro atmosphere with an L-shaped counter.

There is a parking lot next to and across from the restaurant, so parking is not a problem, but it is more crowded than usual, and a long line is inevitable.
Menu and Taste
The menu is simple, with only ramen and tsukemen on the menu. The toppings are characterized by green onions and chashu pork.
We settled on Negi Ramen after having a hard time deciding between it and the Chashu Noodle. The large amount of chashu pork, wakame seaweed, and green onion toppings are eye-catching.
The soup is made of chicken broth and tonkotsu (pork bone). It has a deep richness and is very flavorful.
The large piece of chashu pork, which at first glance looks even rugged, gives the dish a satisfying texture.
And the crispy green onions give a refreshing feeling. This unadorned yet well-balanced dish is one of the best in the world.
Gyoza and…pig’s feet?
This restaurant is supposed to be only for lunch, but for some reason, the menu is full of items that are supposed to be drunk.
First of all, everyone loves gyoza, whether you drink or not. They are orthodox, but who doesn’t like them grilled to perfection?
Then, there are the pig’s feet, which have a distinctive presence on the menu. The tenderness of this stewed pork leg is unbelievable.
That’s all for this time.
When you see a retro store that still exists, doesn’t it make you happy? This restaurant is exactly like that, in a relaxing atmosphere, loved by many locals, and the ramen and other menu items are delicious. Please come and taste the well-balanced soup that has been loved for a long time.
