I've always had my eye on this Ramen Jiro in Kabukicho but in the back alleys surrounded by host clubs, love hotels and suspicious folks its really not a spot I'd go out of my way to check out...
But I was in the area catching up with friends so thought I'd give it a try before catching the last train home. Just line up at the entrance and pick you ramen... standard starts at 700yen
All counter seating.
Went for the 800yen Charsiu ramen
Lots of free toppings! I ordered the garlic topping and regretted it the next day... fresh garlic lingers waaaay too long.
And there it is! Not the monster of a ramen like Jimbocho Ramen Jiro...
Noodles were on the thin side... prefer chunky noodles with great texture myself.
Overall it was worth it to check out one time but I don't think I'll ever be back. Has a respectable foodie ranking of 3.5pts. http://r.tabelog.com/tokyo/A1304/A130401/13019616/
