A delicious meal at Mutekiya 無敵家 about 200m from Ikebukuro station. Highly recommended by a friend, and by looking at Google reviews, this place is very popular. The pork charshu is served in thicker slices and are so tender. Soup-wise, we prefer Ichiran. It just did not provide that kick we were hoping for. I added bonito powder and it improved the soup. Wanton is good too. Just be careful of the chilli on the top. We queued for abt 20min at 4pm. Overall, a satisfying meal :)


It's one of my favorite ramen shops in Tokyo right outside the Ikebukuro station. Stick with #1 and get the Mutekiya ramen special. Rich broth, super tender pieces of pork that fall apart to the touch and the perfect al dente noodles that draw rich broth into your taste buds during each slurp.

There is almost always a 20-30 min line when it's not during rush hour but definitely worth the wait. Cash only, and a little tight for any party more than two. Friendly staff and English menu for those that need it.


One of the most favorite ramen! It's totally my type!
The soup base is really great with smooth and silky. The noodle is well cooked with the chewy texture. I can finish all soup with still craving more of ramen here! The gyoza is pretty good when having together with spicy ramen. Great combination! The restaurant's location is in Ikebukuro and also convenient to go and continue shopping after a meal. I come to have ramen here for two days in a roll.
I think I'm pretty lucky for waitung only 10 mins outside. The customers are quite multi-nationality. It's really famous, but trust me, it's definitely worthy to wait. Really love it! Highly recommend!


Translated from Japanese:

First time at Kakiko...hey...I had decided on this restaurant for my first post. Because the ramen from this restaurant is my favorite food in the world. It's already been 23 years since I started going there. Even if the affiliated store in Koenji burns down, and even if the affiliated store in Shinjuku is excommunicated, this will change...


Translated from Japanese:

Balanced and delicious. It's been a while since I last saw Mutekiya, so I chose something simple this time. I like both soup and noodles. The chashu is melt-in-your-mouth and full of flavor. This is a recommended ramen shop in Ikebukuro...


Translated from Japanese:

In Japan, where the problem of overtourism has recently come to the fore, the ramen shop ``Muteki-ya'' located in a corner of Ikebukuro was visited by customers of various nationalities without exception, and there were about 20 people waiting in line. Is the rotation good for that?
