Bento! #90: Yasai Tappuri Tonkotsu Raamen

This one is 483 yen at the cafeteria. 420 yen for a regular size,
plus 63 yen to go 大盛り (oomori), or to "up-size" it.
The whole thing means "ramen/Chinese-style noodles in boiled pork bones soup topped with plenty of vegetables." Yasai = 野菜 = vegetables. Tappuri = たっぷり = plenty, full of. Tonkotsu = とんこつ = broth/soup made by boiling pork bones for a long period of time. Raamen = ラーメン = ramen. The Chinese-style soup spoon, by the way, is called レンゲ (renge), if I remember correctly.
