Ippudo Ramen

Ippudo ramen is famous for their tonkotsu-based (pork) soup which originated from Hakata, Japan. They are located through out Japan, and in recent years, they have branched out to locations internationally such as Hong Kong, New York, Singapore, and Seoul (though their international locations have slightly different menus).

Depending on the location, there are lines out the door, and during lunch it’s usually hard to get a seat. If it’s your first time, I recommend you try their “akamaru” or “shiromaru” ramen with a side of gyoza – so good! If you are craving a spicy ramen, try their “Ippudo karakamen” — for which you can specify different levels of spicyness (I can only go up to level 3!). I also love that they have a wide variety of condiments and side dishes so you can mix up the flavors. For example, they have takana, ginger, crushed sesame seeds, garlic etc. The moyashi (a free side-dish) that is on the table is slightly spicy but is one of my favorite things to eat before having ramen.

  1. Hello! I came across your blog while doing research for my upcoming trip to Tokyo. Thank you so much for sharing all these wonderful places with us! <3 It has been really helpful to look through your blog.

    I do have a question – which exit do I take from Shibuya station to get to Ippudo Ramen? I couldn't figure it out from the Google map. Thanks!!!!

    • Thank you! :)
      If you are trying to go to the Ippudo I shared here, this one is located in Ebisu and you would take the East Exit. (Ebisu is next to Shibuya on the Yamanote Line). If you go to the Ippudo in Omotesando, you can also try their new soba joint which I posted about it here. Hope you enjoy Tokyo!
