Saru-suberi Description

Located in the heart of Tokyo, saru-suberi is a hidden gem for ramen lovers. This cozy restaurant specializes in tsukemen, a style of ramen where the noodles are served separately and dipped into a rich and flavorful broth. What sets saru-suberi apart from other ramen shops is their dedication to using high-quality ingredients and their meticulous cooking process.

The star of the menu is their signature dish, the '特製煮干しつけ麺' (Special Niboshi Tsukemen). The broth is made by simmering carefully selected ingredients such as dried fish, kelp, chicken bones, and pork bones for hours, resulting in a deep and complex flavor. The noodles are thick and chewy, perfectly complementing the rich broth. For those who prefer a lighter option, the '淡麗塩つけ麺' (Light Salt Tsukemen) is also a popular choice.

The restaurant's interior is simple yet inviting, with wooden furnishings and soft lighting creating a warm and cozy atmosphere. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, always ready to recommend the perfect dish for your taste. Whether you're a ramen aficionado or just looking for a delicious and satisfying meal, saru-suberi is a must-visit destination in Tokyo.

Saru-suberi Reviews

Saru-suberi Google Average Rating



It is a popular store where many customers are always waiting in line to enter. I had plenty of time, so I lined up. Buy a meal ticket at the ticket vending machine first and then line up.

I was worried about whether to make ramen or tsukemen, but I chose ramen.
It is a soup based on "niboshi" and has a salty and soy sauce flavor, and I made it salty.

The flavorful soup had a very elegant taste and was well balanced with the straight thin noodles. The hearty char siu was also delicious.
As expected, it is a popular restaurant!


Special Niboshi Soba (Salt) 🐟🧂🍜 @ Menya Sarusuberi

Menya Sarusuberi is a popular ramen restaurant specialising in tsukemen dipping noodles, located in the basement of a building directly connected to Exit C2 of Shinjuku Sanchome station. 🚇

With only 11 counter seats there is usually a line of hungry punters outside eagerly waiting for their fix of ramen. Buy your meal ticket in advance using the vending machine (cash only) before handing it to the staff. 🎟

While tsukemen is the specialty of Sarusuberi, I was in the mood for ramen so ordered the special niboshi soba (choose from soy sauce or salt). 🍜

After a few minutes the steaming bowl arrived with bountiful toppings - seared pork belly chashu, rare pork loin chashu, chicken chashu, seasoned egg, nori seaweed, radish sprouts, bamboo shoots, chopped onion & spring onion. 🐷🍗🥚🌱🧅

Made from dried sardines, the soup has a strong umami punch, but is rich and clean without being overly fishy. You can feel the tang of yuzu fruit in the back of the throat which made it quite refreshing and light. 🧐

In particular the chashu was really good - tender, melt-in-your-mouth delicious and full of flavour. The various cuts provide different textures and complement the noodles and vegetables perfectly. 😋

Overall this was an excellent ramen and highly recommended to all fans of niboshi soup. Give it a try when you are in the Shinjuku area! 💯
