If you want to have an Onomichi ramen in Tokyo, this restaurant is the best choice for you. The taste is very good, and the
staff is always kind.

Note) The roasted pork fillet is arranged as preferred in Tokyo.


2023/10/21 Visited at noon. Although it was Saturday, it was almost full. This is a valuable restaurant where you can eat Onomichi ramen in Tokyo. I bought Onomichi ramen with soft-boiled egg for 930 yen from the ticket vending machine. Since you are alone, you will be guided to the counter. After handing the ticket to the waiter, the rice bowl was served in about 10 minutes.
The ramen is a unique soy sauce ramen sprinkled with semi-solid back fat.
The large char siew is also soft and delicious. I changed the green onions to white onions, but this goes well with the soup.
The slightly thin noodles are entwined with the soup and are a complete meal. I almost drank the whole soup without thinking, but I was old enough to hold back and go home. It is delicious.


I've eaten seasoned noodles about 20 times. I'm seriously hooked.
Straight, chewy noodles are topped with plenty of crunchy vegetables stir-fried over high heat. The sauce is the sauce. I like the overall cleanliness.

I love yakisoba, and I'm a fan of curly noodles, so when I first ate it, I thought, "The sauce is a little thin...? The noodles are straight, which is a strange food...", but when they added the sauce that came with it ( *The more you eat it, the more delicious it becomes) I can't get enough of it. The key is to get it as thick as you like!
Furthermore, if you add garlic from the table (*the more you add it, the tastier it is), you can enjoy it while also feeling a sense of immorality, so you won't get tired of it, and it's a food that you want to keep eating for the rest of your life, and you won't be able to stop eating it.

One plate is quite filling. When you eat it, memories that don't exist come back to you, like, ``It's that yakisoba that my dad used to make on holidays!'' and you're immersed in nostalgia.

The store staff are also cheerful and everyone loves them. The inside of the store is also clean. Be careful as sometimes I forget that I'm closed on Sundays and end up saying "Aaah" (falling down on my knees) in front of the store.
