Menya Goto Description

Menya Goto is a hidden gem located in the Komagome neighborhood of Tokyo. This cozy and inviting restaurant specializes in authentic Japanese ramen and tsukemen, a dipping noodle dish. With a rating of 3.7 out of 5 stars and over 500 reviews, it's clear that Menya Goto has captured the hearts and taste buds of locals and visitors alike.

What sets Menya Goto apart from other ramen shops is their dedication to using high-quality ingredients and traditional cooking techniques. The rich and flavorful broth is simmered for hours to achieve the perfect balance of flavors. The noodles are made in-house, ensuring a fresh and chewy texture that pairs perfectly with the savory broth.

One of the standout menu items at Menya Goto is their signature ramen. The broth is made from a blend of pork and chicken bones, resulting in a rich and creamy base that is packed with umami flavors. Topped with tender slices of chashu (braised pork), bamboo shoots, and a perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg, every bite is a delight for the senses. For those who prefer a different experience, the tsukemen is a must-try. The thick and chewy noodles are served alongside a separate bowl of concentrated broth for dipping, allowing you to control the intensity of the flavors.

The restaurant itself is cozy and intimate, with a traditional Japanese decor that transports you to another time. The friendly and attentive staff are always ready to assist you in choosing the perfect dish and provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Whether you're a ramen aficionado or simply looking to experience authentic Japanese cuisine, Menya Goto is a must-visit destination in Tokyo.

2023/10/02 I've been going to this store since it was in a semi-basement near Rikkyo University in Ikebukuro. The store in Ikebukuro closed nine years ago. Since then, I have visited the store several times since it was moved to its current location in Komagome.
This time I visited in the afternoon for the first time in four years. There were 5 customers.
I bought 800 ramen + 100 boiled eggs = 900 yen from the ticket vending machine at the entrance and went to the counter seat.
At this restaurant, we mainly serve tsukemen, but today we have ramen. This ramen is similar to Koganei Taishoken, which I often go to, which is a descendant of Taishoken in Higashiikebukuro.
The rice bowl arrived within a few minutes.
It's the same Taishoken style ramen as usual, and the thick noodles go well with the soup, which has a bit of a twist.
Menma is also thick and has plenty of it. I'm an old man now, so I can't eat ramen every day, but I do want to eat ramen once in a while.
CP is still high.
Thank you for the meal!

I happened to see it so I went in.
I ordered wonton mori soba.

After entering the restaurant, I learned that the tsukemen was made by Taishoken, and I thought I had made a mistake in ordering the tsukemen, but even though I don't like the sweet and sour dipping sauce of Taishoken, it was delicious.
The dipping sauce was a seafood-based soy sauce flavor with a slightly sour taste. (Not sweet)

The wontons had plenty of meat in them, each piece was large, and the ramen was very satisfying.

A lot of things happened today and it was difficult.

At times like this
I eat the ramen here
When something bad happens
Eat the ramen here.

Because the noodles are 300 grams
When your stomach is full
Will your irritation subside?

That's not true.
Ramen here.
If you eat one cup
Let's try again tomorrow
It's a mysterious ramen that makes you feel good.
Thank you for today.

It's ramen that gives you great power.

``Menya Goto'' has been with us for a quarter of a century. Menya Goto was the undisputed leader of Ikebukuro ramen. Even though I moved to Komagome, I still visit often. I'm not really looking at anything...

Translated from Japanese:

I thought about this last night while eating Ogikubo ramen. “I want to eat Mori Soba from Taishoken.” The Ogikubo ramen was delicious enough, but the Mori Soba from Taishoken was the best for me. Now, Higashiikebukuro or Iidabashi, no, Goto...
