At first, pineapple ramen sounds strange, maybe even downright awful. But imagine some other things that have been matched with pineapples. Pineapple and a sweet terriyaki sauce make a great burger topping. Pineapple glaze is amazing on ham and pork chops. And thousands of Hawaiian-style pizzas are ordered every day. Does it work with ramen? You bet.

Papapapapine's interior is decorated from top to bottom with pineapples. Go for the shoyu with all the toppings (Y920). You'll get extra pork, extra chopped pineapple, and an egg that has been marinated in, you guessed it, pineapple juice. The soup isn't too sweet, just enough to match the saltiness of the soy sauce.

Papapapa Pine also has occasional limited bowls that use other fruit. Figs, bananas, and strawberries have all made their was into bowls at Papapapa Pine.
