Open 24hours. Located on the 2nd floor with a sign that's very visible from the street. Get tickets from the machine outside.

Customise ramen as desired. The interior comprises single... More

Tokyo, like most other cities, is expensive. Getting a value for money gastronomic experience is challenging, but I think a meal at Ichiran comes close to this.

Once there, you pre-pay for your meal, then sit in a stall, which is like sitting at a bar, but with walls between you and your neighbor. The wait-service is behind a short curtain... More

Have heard a lot about Ichiran and the name seems to have a very loyal following of fans, so I was eager to try. I wwent to the Roppongi branch. Food-wise: Ichiran has some very straight forward, no-frills, delicious ramen in their "secret recipe" tonkotsu (pork bone) broth. With only one soup choice, the focus is on their noodles. I... More
