Fantastic ramen

Good food, fast, and a great local experience. The perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg is out of this world.

The noodle in this ramen store has reached mastery in terms of its tensile strength, taste and consistency. It doesn't break apart easily nor become soggy even if you take your time with it. The pork that accompanies it is succulent but not suitable for those watching their waist line. The hard boiled egg was done enough to have its... More

This place is fantastic, you order from a machine which prints out a ticket. The buttons on the left are soy based broth with the middle buttons being miso based broth. Both good but I prefer the soy based. Melt in the mouth pork great noodles and a chilled beer, perfect dinner and it cost less than $10.

Order the #1 and you can't go wrong. Delicious soy based ramen soup with pork belly and soft boiled egg. Guys are fun to watch and listen to even though you have no idea what they are saying. Fun atmosphere eating noodles at the bar.

We decided to come here one night after reading a blog about the best ramen places in Tokyo and we were not disappointed ! One of the staff members came out from behind the bar to help us make a decision on what kind we would like which was really nice of him, and the one he picked was superb... More

Great ramen easy to find. Vending machines system 3 type of ramen. Both my wife chose the left most ramen which was great!!! Take a seat and the size of noodles will be taken down by staff. Regular or large. After that just wait for your delicious noodles to arrive. Very cheerful group of stuff. Nice place to visit

For tourists, you order off of the vending-machine menu that prints out a ticket. Nothing is in English, but you can generally get help, or just point to what you want. Top left has the soysauce-based, and it is to me by far the best...the second from the left is the Miso based - still good, but not even close... More

Saw this restaurant featured on a food television show and made sure it was on my itinerary stop over in Japan. It was fantastic! It was difficult to find - had to end up getting a cab to it after wondering around on foot for 30 minutes or so. But to the ramen, chewy deliciousness! The broth - deep flavors... More

Stopped by here after reading some reviews and we were not disappointed. The ramen was perfect and juicy and delicious, especially the chunky pieces of pork. We left very satisfied!

Ramen noodles are all the rage in Shinjuku and much of Japan for that matter. So what is all the fuss about? Our local contact tells us that Menya Musashi is one of the best around and it’s not too far away. The lunch rush is pretty busy so we should get there early or late. When we arrive early... More

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. 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. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
