1st time ever in my life to have ramen on the 2nd floor of a building... wow... I've passed by this spot on many occasions but never bothered looking up. My friend posted a Facebook update with Ichiran Ramen lunch pic and commented "delicious" so had to give it a try~
All items pictured on the push button ticket vending machine.
Seems like the seasoned egg is ranked #1 in surveys.
Its like a love hotel... the tiny booth seats in lite up in blue are open to sit in... when a customer occupies a seat the light goes dark. Neat...
A full house! How did everyone know there was a ramen spot here~
Peeked thru the green curtain to see what was going on inside.
English and Japanese menu's to create your perfect ramen~.
Brought out my Sony AS10 ActionCam... 170 degree's for ya!
Free hot tea
Menu on the chopstick sleeve.
The noodles were great... thin but very chewy... not like a al'dente chewy but more like a lasagna chewy. I had quite a few drinks at Watami before heading here so don't quite recall how tasty the tonkotsu soup was.
I usually prefer sitting shoulder to shoulder with strangers over tiny booths but if you like your privacy and enjoy taking pics... videos... whatever then its a great spot for a foodie. For 790yen and customizable ramen I will probably return. Would have to say this is on even par with Ippudo only a block away. Ooohh this place is open til 6am.
