I like Ramen but don't suggest randomly going into any spot. Its always best to see how high foodies scored the shop on Tabelog. Anything restaurant ranked above 3.75 is going to be good... and Ramen Cique at 3.97, I couldn't go wrong!
If you don't know Japanese Hiragana/Katagana then always push the upper left corner button on the automatic ramen ticket dispenser. Its usually the least expensive but best of all the most recommended ramen in the shop. Shio ramen (700yen) was on upper left corner but I like Miso so gave it a try (750 yen) plus one seasoned egg (100yen).
Only 6 counter seats and 1 ramen chef.
Chef behind the counter. Shop had a great mix of Jazzy and 80's tunes.
A little garlic, yuzu (green) and red pepper.
Ramen was very good. Had a lightly smelly Tonkotsu flavor that was a bit addictive. The charshu was so melty tender. There was an even mix of men and women in the shop, mostly in their 20's.
About a 10 minute walk from the station but well worth it!
