Did not even hear about this until a friend studying locally introduced it to us. There are several branches in Tokyo, the one we went to is in Shibuya, about a 10min stroll from Shibuya Station. We got there about 7pm and by luck there...were 3 seats for us. It's the counter type of searing. There were two choices for the noodle: spicy or non spicy. The options were further divided into portions: small, big, W. Apparently W in japanese sounds like double so yes, it's double the portion! I ordered the spicy big and yes it's much more than I can handle. Refer to photos! When the noodle came, it looked like any other plain noodle with meat. However, the secret is the oil they left at the bottom of the bowl. The magic happens after u mix it thoroughly, the spicy red oil coating each individual noodle and there were still leftover oil at the bottom of the bowl. The Flavor of the oil is the first thing you will taste and one you wish you can have once a week. Addictive. Halfway through the meal, crowd started to come in. All seats were taken and the 2m wide queing space were all full. The waitors and chef were standing around because they can't serve Til we leave, and my poor wife was so stressed eating because it's as if all eyes were on her: from the cooks' eyes at the front to the queuing guests from the back! When we leave, she was still chewing on her food! This was definitely a great surprise in my itinerary. The problem now is, where the heck can I eat this once I get back to Singapore!More

Best nearby
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
