Long lines always happen here in this undeniably famous ramen house! To avoid the hassle of lining up, it’s best if you can arrive earlier than the opening time of the shop.
“The Counter Area”
This ramen shop has a total of 16 counter seats, 6 counter seats, and the rest are all table seats. The dining area is a little narrow but still feels comfortable to dine in.
The ambiance is just like any other local ramen shops with an average loudness. Most of their customers are Japanese “salary men” or office workers nearby and some are foreign travelers.
The restaurant is famous for its bestselling Shio Ramen which is a true match for rice ball flavored with powder of dried mackerel. The perfect mix of fish and chicken broth made the soup richer in taste and extraordinary.
