Though the temperature of Ajisen's spicy-pork ramen won't singe your tongue like Santoka Ramen's broth will, it operates on the other definition of heat, courtesy of all that red pepper. The seething, caustic red powder is concentrated and caked on the ground pork, imparting its hotness into the liquid immediately. Gluttons for pain will want to swirl it around to distribute the spice into the porky punch, turning the milky caramel-colored brew into a fiery moat.
