SHINUKU GOLDEN GAI: Nagi for fish broth ramen... it was powerful~ Super friendly staff!!

I'm the biggest fan of Futomen (Thick Chewy Noodle) ramen and I discovered Ramen Nagi ラーメン 凪 新宿煮干 新宿ゴールデン街店 randomly via Ramen Adventures website.

Buy your ticket before lining up!

We peeked in the alley way next to the ramen shop and there was a line... nice older Japanese guy said yup we gotta line up way in the back.  But was a very short wait... maybe 15min?  

We were greeted with this! Super smiley friendly ramen chef... this place was soooo welcoming.

Friendly Japanese guy took the corner seat so I could have a view of the Ramen Chef in action.

2 very kind girls to my right... all smiles. 

Unique chopsticks :)

A solid brick of a Char-siu.  If you are not into fish soup based ramen this spot can be a bit overbearing.  I'm more of a Tonkotsu (pork soup ramen) kinda guy bit this was a great change of pace.  The foodie ranking is a very respectable 3.58pts

Thick chewy noodles! YUM!!

Tight space for the staff

All counter seating.

One of the friendly staff... everyone here was just too cool.

Met a few fellow ramen lovers downstairs... Overall would I go back... absolutely!  Ramen Adventures commented "Perfection"... and I'd have to agree a very memorable experience! Go go go!!
