On the hunt for a ramen shop that doesn't close pre-midnight in Nerima and came across Isshi. Probably one of the most visually appealing ramen exteriors ever.
Open til 6am... phew.
Osusume was the Tonkotsu-Black-Ramen 750yen.
Onigiri's on deck. One thing I noticed was the Exile BGM and the friendly Ramen Chef kinda looked like he could be one of the guys in this popular Japanese all guy group.
The only question that will be asked is how you like your noodles.
Friend mentioned its very similar to Ippudo Ramen
If you "LIKE" their Facebook page and then you can get a free topping... slice of Char-sui, egg and a few others. Went for an extra half of egg.
FB LINK to the Isshi Page.
Very flavorful charsiu
And if you want a refill of noodles "Kaedama" its just 100 yen. Overall the ramen was quite boring and volume lacking compared to most spots... it just didn't do it for me and later looking at the foodie ranking of "3.00 points" I realized many others felt the same. But I think this place could be easily a hit with the ladies with Exile BGM playing and super friendly Exile looking ramen chef. Mostly counter seating but there are a few tables in the back for couples.
