Located in Shibuya, this popular ramen joint has been around for years and serves delicious golden shoyu-based Chinese noodle (中華麺) ramen. It seems to be very popular amongst salary-men, students, and many of their loyal customers tend to be male. It’s located in a rather sketchy area (somewhat of a red light district…), but this place serves flavorful and delicious ramen.

The first floor counter seats were full when we arrived so we got seated in the second floor area. The workers were speaking Chinese to each other as we waited for our ramen. Both of us ordered the “Moyashi-men” (もやし麺) for 800yen. The generous amounts of moyashi with the golden shoyu-soup went perfectly together and I can see why many people love this place. Other popular ramen choices seem to be “Moyashi Wonton-men” (900yen), “Chashu wonton-men” (1000yen), and their gyoza (500yen). The ambiance is not necessarily nice nor does it have great service but the ramen is definitely good. Come check it out if you’re in the area.

Note: Some of their prices went up from when I took the photo of their menu

  2. Dear Maki,

    I wish I knew your blog a lot earlier!! I’m living in Japan atm and I find it very hard to find nice places to eat in Tokyo just because the city is so big and some places are just so hidden. I really love your blog and will be a regular reader from now on! :)
