HARAJUKU: 600yen Kyushu Jangara Ramen... vs Cup Noodle! Its a close one!

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!
