Village Yokocho's ramen

Anyone else love the (tonkotsu) ramen here? I never hear anything about it on the boards.

I tried the Village Yokocho ramen twice, and all two times, I was blown away by the broth. This is the second ramen they list on the menu, I can't read the Chinese characters in the name, but I asked the waitress if this was tonkotsu ramen but she said no. But the broth is milky, bone-y like it's been simmered for hours. Fantastic. The noodles are whatever, the pork slices are meltingly good without being ridiculously fatty.

I've tried Minca (terrible broth, ugh), Rai Rai Ken, Ippudo and various ramen shops, but this is the one that sticks out in my mind. The broth!!!
