Suzuran Description

Located in Tokyo, Suzuran is a specialty restaurant that focuses on rich and flavorful Niboshi ramen. This unique establishment combines carefully selected dried sardines and seafood with a rich pork bone broth to create their signature dish, the 'Niboshi Chuka Soba.' The thick, curly noodles perfectly complement the robust soup, making every bite a delight.

One of the standout menu items at Suzuran is the 'Yakiaji Niboshi Soba,' a limited edition dish that features charcoal-grilled dried sardines. The smoky flavor of the grilled fish adds a unique twist to the already delicious ramen. For a refreshing and satisfying end to your meal, try the 'Yakiaji Chazuke,' a dish where ramen soup is poured over rice, creating a perfect harmony of flavors.

Suzuran takes pride in their use of low-temperature cooked rare chashu, which maximizes the tenderness and flavor of the meat. The restaurant's cozy and inviting atmosphere, combined with their dedication to quality ingredients and meticulous cooking techniques, sets them apart from other ramen establishments. Whether you're a ramen enthusiast or simply looking for a memorable dining experience, Suzuran is a must-visit destination.

Suzuran Reviews

Suzuran Google Average Rating



One of the best Niboshi Soup-based noodles in Shinjuku is Suzuran. Here the soup is great that it is drinkable. Niboshi usually have a bitterness but here don’t know why it doesn’t have a bitterness, it is more like richful dashi flavor with an ingredient of niboshi. Put simply, The soup has richful Dashi taste mixed with the expensive soy source. The noodle, soup, ingredients such as an egg, a slice of roasted pork fillets, and a diced onion.

What I call the good ramen is everything including noodles, soup, and ingredients match on the same high-standard line. That means, the good ramen must not have a specific point because the good ramen is all good on everything.

Here then I’m sure this is the one of the best ramen in a Niboshi genre aka the good ramen.

Have a wonderful time and enjoy your rest of your day with full filling with your heart and stomach
