This was a ramen shop close to our hotel. We would go past it at various times and see lots of commuters and locals eating there. So we gave it a go on a slow and quiet Sunday. There’s the occasional travellers like us because it is close to the APA hotel in Shinjuku.
The menu is basic in a good way. There’s about 10 choices of ramen, all sharing the same pork based creamy soup – the sort I like much more than the miso or soy based ones, which I find a little salty. It reminds us of our favourite ramen place at Manpuku at Kingsford.
The place feels like it is family owned and the fit out seems to be from the 70’s/80’s. Maybe even earlier.
When you getter a view of the shop for afar, you see how it is hemmed in by newer and much taller buildings on all sides. And I wonder if the owner of the place is kicking themselves for not selling it for great profits during various booms, especially during the go go years of the 80’s.
