Such a wonderful eating experience.
I got the 親鶏中華そば (Soba noodles with chicken).
The first thing I do when I have a soup type meal is the broth test, and this passed the test the second the broth hit my tongue. The broth is rich in flavour, and smooth.
The texture of the noodles is perfect; you can order medium thickness or extra thickness.
The chicken has a chewiness, while the other meat is tender with a salty taste.
You can order extras to add to the meal.
Very affordable.
10/10 will go back.


Awesome fresh homemade noodles
The soup is clear but tasty - well balanced and savoury
The egg is fantastic

Where we need one more step is the chashu: a little dry and chewy. Not a big fan of the chicken skin either.

Recommended and will come back !


Here is the best soy source based ramen in Ebisu, and in the world. This ramen is beyond our expectation. It’s not like ramen you imagine. Here’s why.
1: the noodle is different. The noodle is twisted so that it absorbs the soup when you sip the noodle like a boss.
2: the soup. It’s sophisticated soup. The based soup is the soy source. But this soy source is not like we have for sushi. It’s more mild and transparent and more like nature. I’m sure the owner has been trained by the master for a while. You can feel and tell the difference the professionals create.
3: the ingredients. The good ramen fusions with the ingredients such as the egg, the bamboo shoots, green onion…. Here beyond that, I would like to point out the meet. This ramen fits perfectly with the Boston butt and the chicken thigh.

What i order.
親鳥飯 the parents chicken rice.
手打ち中華そば the homemade noodle , same as the ramen.
