Great ramen houses are gathered in Shibuya. Why? Because Locals go eat ramen after clubbing! (Shibuya is one of the clubbing capital in Tokyo.)

HOW was IT?

In the video, I might have made it sound like it's not good but it's actually really good. (I'm not good at food report) I mean there's a reason why it's always rated the best in Shibuya, right? If you're into fish/pork flavor or think soup, this might be your favorite. 

It is famous for Tsuke-men - you dip cold noodle into hot thick soup. Soup is fish/pork belly based, very thik and slightly sweet. It's so flavorful and you can't stop dipping.

TIPS TO ORDER

There is no English menu but pictures are on everything. Here are my tips on how to order.

First, you need to buy a ticket at the vending machine in side of the store. Top low is the main menu, Middle low is the spicy version, and the bottom is ramen.  You can see the picture what toppings you want. 

Next, you need to give the tickets to staff and tell them which noodles you want. White noodle on the left is thick fluffy flour noodle, and the brown noodle on the left is thin germ noodle. There are picture hanging on the wall everywhere so you can point the picture to let them know.
