Chewy ramen

Love it! If you like chewy noodle, try LARGE. We did not understand why the cook ask large or regular after we paid. We thought we didnt want to waster so we said REGULAR. But, we got large noodle by mistake. And what a great mistake that was. I tried the tsukemen (dipping style). It was on the... read more

Loved the dipping ramen here especially with the fatty slow cooked pork pieces, and slurpable noodles. It gets especially packed during lunch and seating set up is up at the bench facing the kitchen, so try to beat the rush. The portions are very generous (esp. the noodles). The broth looks rich but after dipping, it's just perfect!

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 broth) whereas I prefer a... 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.
