What is Jiro-Kei(Jiro-style) Ramen?

I do love Jiro-Kei Ramen so much. It is very famous among the Japanese, but it is domestic. So I’ll explain it. Jiro-Kei Ramen refers to a style or lineage of ramen that takes “Ramen Jiro” as its original, typical, model, or standard. Ramen Jiro is a popular ramen restaurant founded in 1968 in Mita, Minato-ku, Tokyo. Its characteristic feature is the quantity of ramen and the strength of its flavor, which has a substantial and impactful effect. It is characterized by garlic, pork fat, and hard noodles.
