The average travel time on foot is approximately 6 minutes from (Tokyo Metro Namboku Line) Azabu-Juban Station.
The exterior has bigger and bold fonts of the restaurant’s name in English so it isn’t difficult to find even for foreigners. The place isn’t new anymore but I love the idea that it is still well-maintained.
Expect long lines especially during peak hours.
There are about 18 counter seats in total and yes, it is a limited space but it is comfortable to dine in.
If you are eating alone this place is one of some good choices you can get! Dining with a friend or co-worker is also okay, however, you might need to wait a little longer for the turn over time.
“Yuzu Shoyu Ramen”
Afuri ramen bowls are being served with two choices of broth, the shoyu(soy sauce) and yuzu (citrus junos). It is highly recommended to try Afuri’s signature yuzu broth as it gives that lemon tang and refreshing taste.
・Recommended when eating alone, with co-worker, and for dating.
・Not available for private use.
・Ticket vending machine is uesed in selecting order.
Because we were so busy checking out the retail shops, all the restos were closed by the time we were ready to eat dinner (way past 10pm). Luckily, the ramen shop in Azabu-juban called Afuri was open til 5am! We slurped down our bowls of yuzu ramen and tsukemen at midnight 🍜 once again, sobrang sarap 😀 the sauce wasn’t too salty or oily, and it had a great citrus flavor, the noodles were thick and had a great bite, the pork was deliciously roasted and fatty 🙂 #feedthebirdie
