Awesome ramen: great chunky pieces of pork but a fishy broth

This was my second favourite ramen spot in tokyo (close second though!) with amazing great chucks of pork that is both a bit different from your usual ramen and also tasty. The reason it gets the number two spot is because the broth had a fishy taste (i think they include seaweed when cooking the... read more

Simply amazing Japanese ramen. The place has a line of people waiting to get in. You place your order at the machine and then give your ticket to the guy behind the counter. Seating is like a long sushi bar and as people leave the people in line take a seat and the guy behind the counter serves you your... More

The tonkatsu ramen is delicious, especially the slow-bruised pork (a must try) The portion is adequate for one person and the broth not too oily, which is the reason I like it very much. The environment is great with traditional deco. Worth a try!

This place was suggested to me by a friend, and I was so glad he did. This place had one of the best ramens I had ever tasted. The thick slices of pork were delicious, tender, and sweet, the broth was to die for. I don't think my husband and I have ever enjoyed ramen so much. It was a... More

We went to Menya a total of 6 times while in Japan. We tried a huge variety of ramen during our trip but always found ourselves coming back for the thick chewy noodles, rich broth, and chunky pork belly. Its entertaining to watch the cooks as they're quite loud and cheerful at every step. It is a little difficult to... More

In order to get into the shop you walk off the main road past a few dodgy looking places into this hiding hole. It is well worth it! For only 750 yen you get a great ramen with an incredibly rich broth and great noodles to slurp. The pop music inside was atrocious, but I would definitely return.

Pork deliciousness Yummy broth This was the ramen I had waited for and it nailed it I find finding japanese restaurants hard because of the lack of english outside - this is black and vermillion I think and on the ground floor so if u think u see it just go in Google maps wasn't very precise

You order your ramen using a vending machine. Directions on how to order- 1. Put money in 2. Choose a meal (most people recommend the top left one) 3. Choose how many you want. 4.

To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household.
