Huge ramen connoisseur friend says this his now his favorite ramen place in Tokyo. Next door to highly ranked Hanada was a shop called Ramen Ichiban but seems they closed down and Hanada opened up a new style ramen shop focusing on something like Taiwanese Maze Soba.
Anything under 700yen is a solid price point.
Free extra garlic and rice.
Had to order the 100yen rice with seasoned meat topping.
There it is..
Whats most interesting is they use miso seasoning for this Abura-Soba, Noodles where thicky and chewy... immensely flavorful miso sauce. When you are done don't forget to ask for a scoop of free rice to mix into the leftover sauce/meat.
A long line to the original ramen style shop to the right but sure did enjoy Hanada Tonari.
