As a backup I had some shoyu tare which I was reluctant to use as I like to keep the tonkotsu as white as possible.

Koie Ramen review

Today I was passing through Oslo with only 1 hour before I had to catch a connecting train. So I opened Google Maps and picked the one that was closest to the train station, Koie Ramen. I had a quick look at the number of reviews on Google and it seemed like a lot of people were giving it the thumbs up.
