A brand new Ramen shop opened up in Ikebukuro on April 2014 and a friend of mine mentioned their 450yen price point... just had to check it out.
I've never seen this before... there are loads of regular style ramen's but on the far right a 450yen button! Shoyu Ramen "Nami" (regular) or "Oomori" (Large) for the same price.
Noodles are made in house (look below for pics of the machine), no preservatives, all natural.
"L" shaped counter that was immaculately clean.
Salt and pepper in mini Coca Cola bottles.
There it is! Simplicity with out the mess of toppings... My friend who always says ramen should be judged on the soup and noodles.
We chatted up the owner and he mentioned their style is very similar to the great Hawaiian Ramen Hulu-Lu spot in the area. Click here for that review:
It was just a great simple ramen that hit the spot. Noodles were thin and had a solid texture to them. Shoyu soup very mellow and deeply flavorful.
The incredibly friendly owner Mr. Watanabe... chat him up if you want to know more.
This is where the home made ramen noodles are prepared everyday.
A great spot with a solid Tabelog foodie ranking. I'll 100% definitely be back again to try their other selections. Just can't beat the friendly owner, super clean interior, great 50's decor and a satisfying bowl of 450yen ramen.
