We went to Ganso Ramen Street for dinner and was checking out each style of cooking. Decided to give this shop a go given it has the authentic miso soup base that was originated from Hokkaido. For those who like spicy food, go for the...More

A must try spot. Very good miso ramen for affordable prices. People saying otherwise definitely do not know their ramen. Going around lunch and dinner you may have to wait in line. Tight shops, so not kid friendly if having a stroller or many bags.

If you love ramen, then come here. You won’t be disappointed. An alley of around a dozen ramen shops. Not too many tourists either. A very authentic foodie experience.

An entire alley of ramen joints. I could have eaten here every day. EXCEPT for the Rame place that Anthony Bourdain ate at. Avoid it. Super rude, ramen was only so-so.

The Ramen Alley has plenty of stalls selling Ramen Noodles. Pitstop to fill up with Ramen. Alley located behind the shopping Mall with the Nikki Whiskey Logo.

This is a inside alley lined with ramen shops of all shapes, sizes and prices. We found a very reasonable place to eat very easily. Some the larger places are often reserved for groups. But, I don't think any walk-ins will have to go hungry...More
