I got the gyoza and some ramen. The gyoza were a perfect accompaniment to the ramen, the ramen was some of the best I've had. It was great to sit in front of the kitchen and watch the chefs do their magic.

Went here randomly after visiting Sensoji Temple. Saw that they have Gyoza on the Menu, actually there is nothing else on the menu than Ramen and Gyoza. And what darn great Gyoza! Killer crispy, big, delicate filling. To die for.
Slender bar, open from 11am - 8.30pm, don't look for chic or hip. This is simple pop and outstanding.

Yoroiya is a small restaurant.

I say that up front to prep you for the experience. There are two kinds of small restaurants: quaint and cozy, or cramped and uncomfortable. Without question, Yoroiya falls into the former category - as much as a busy ramen restaurant can, that is.

And it is busy. There are not many places to sit, and, like most Japanese restaurants, you have to wait for your table outside. Our wait was about five minutes because we were right on the shoulder of the lunch rush.

It is close to Sensoji temple, so is very convenient to both tourist attractions and shopping.

The food was excellent. There have been movies made about how the mystique around ramen. Many people in America associate ramen with quick food; it isn't seen as something you'd get in a restaurant. So for any Americans with that preconceived notion, think of ramen like you think of a hamburger in the US: you can get cheap burgers, you can make your own at home from a box of frozen patties; but you can also get very expensive burgers. Same with ramen.

Like most noodle dishes, there is a very fine line in the firmness of the noodles. Yoroiya got it perfect. The soup was also spectacular. My son and I chose a soy-based soup, my wife got a miso-based stock. Either is recommended. We also got gyoza as a side dish; it was a bit too much, but the gyoza was really, really good, too.

There are many great places to eat in the area, and I've only been to one. But without question, it was a great choice.
