Ramen in Uruma l Okinawa Hai!

My husband’s coworker told us about this place, so we met him for lunch one Saturday. It’s my husband’s coworker’s favorite place for ramen and I love ramen! I asked my husband what’s the name- and he didn’t know. Once we got there, I noticed a flame around the entrance, so I call it “Flame Ramen.”

We arrived before the friend did and sat down at a table. You have to take your shoes off, but they hang below the table, so there’s plenty of leg room! They have menus in Japanese at the table, but brought us English menus right away. There was a lot to choose from and I noticed four types of ramen: salt, miso, spicy miso, and pork.

If you’re not into ramen, that’s okay because they also have steak, chicken, noodles, and fried rice. I also like the fact that the menu has lots of pictures and I noticed a kids menu.

We all got the set. WARNING: food overload! We also ordered a side of spicy potatoes and taco rolls. Taco rolls are like egg rolls, but with ground beef and cheese in it.

I picked miso, my husband picked pork and our friend went with spicy miso.  The sets come with rice, ramen, gyoza, salad and fried shrimp.

Ramen in Uruma l Okinawa Hai!Overall, it wasn’t bad.  It reminded me of Tan Tan Man across from the old USNH hospital (near Camp Lester), so kind of a Chinese flare to me. Also, probably the biggest bang for my buck in terms of the amount of food you get for the price. I thought the pork ramen was the best, in my opinion. If you’re in the Courtney area, I suggest stopping by for a bowl of ramen or other yummy treats!

  1. Went there yesterday and was not disappointed. Everything that we ordered was delicious. First we started with the taco spring rolls(you gotta try those if you go and they came with a sweet chili sauce very delicious). Me and my wife both ordered sets and each set was enough food for two people. Great place to try if you are in the area.

  2. This is one of those places that catches you by surprise with some of the decoration they have inside…. Great prices for the amount of food you get. Also, try the GARLIC ramen and garlic rice….AMAZING! Seating is very diverse for everyones needs. The place only accepts Dollars & Yen!!

  3. We gave it a try today after reading this article this morning and loved it! Great portions for the price. Definitely recommend the taco rolls and teppan yaki steak.

  4. This is my families favorite Ramen joint on island. They take dollar and have a pretty good Yen rate. We have never gotten something that didn’t taste good. They have a “chicken steak” set that comes out on a cast iron skillet (shaped as a cow) with corn. It’s by far my favorite meal there. I highly recommend this place!

    • Out of gate 2, take a left on the 330. The 330 becomes the 75. Although the map above has it on the 16/75 intersection, the restaurant is actually at the first light after the 85/75 intersection. (Don’t worry, you can’t miss it.)

      • Beck, I just moved the map pin to the spot (I think) you’re talking about. It’s a bit tricky without a physical address but let me know if this still isn’t correct. Thanks for navigating!
