After a few Happy Hour drinks at Harajuku TGIFridays I just had that ramen craving and couldn't resist the large 600yen Kyushu-Jangara-Ramen sign on the way to JR Harajuku station~....
There is usually a line when I pass by this place and at 8pm it was a full house... nice mix of college students, girls and salarymen.
Didn't want anything too filling so went for the very reasonable 600yen Jangara-Ramen. Oh the service was dead on super friendly! Everyone said welcome and all smiles... ramen guy even offered an English menu and tried to speak a little English.
Window seat with me and this tiny Snowman.
Red pickled ginger and hot pickled greens... watchout for the greens as just a tiny bit can really spice up your ramen soup and overwhelm the flavor.
There it is! It was quite different from the "Creamy and Wild" 1,000yen Bonshan Ramen I had in Akasaka... the bowl was much bigger but volume seemed the same.
If you want a nice flavored boiled egg its extra.
Some toppings... fresh garlic, sesame seeds...etc.
Very thin noodles...
Included 2 tiny slices of Pork.
Overall the volume and flavor was very underwhelming... I'd have to call this after drinks beer food. Its not something you will be craving on a regular basis but the price point was just right. But honestly I think the 170yen 7-11 and Ippudo collaboratio ramen was just as good as this place... AND if you compare Jangara 600yen ramen to Jimbocho Ramen-Jiro's 650yen monster then you will be incredibly disappointed.
Only a 2min walk from Kyushu-Jangara to JR Harajuku Station.
And only steps from the Harajuku Nike shop... Congrats Barcelona!
