About 5 minutes walk from Meguro Station.
It is located at a very steep part of Gonnosuke-zaka.
Look for the yellow signboard.

It's a small shop with about 8 counter seats.
I received the char siu noodles for 950 yen.
There were many customers eating snacks and drinking bottled beer.

The soup is very ordinary Chinese noodles style.
The first characteristic is that the vessel is oval and shallow. It's not particularly hard to eat, but I wonder if the soup will cool down a little faster this way.

Also, the char siu may look dry in the photo, but that's not the case; it was surprisingly well seasoned and delicious.

Also, the seasoned cabbage is hidden under the chashu, and I would like to praise the fact that the cabbage is not just boiled, but is cooked properly. (Perhaps it is the same cabbage that is served as a snack)

The ramen is a total wonder and harmony, and I can see why it has been operating here for so long.
If I pass by, I might pop in again.
Thank you for the meal.


The atmosphere reminds me of a ramen shop in the countryside. On the 23rd, I entered the store after being invited to buy ramen for 600 yen. You might think it's tonkotsu kotteri ramen, but it's a deep ramen with a strong soup stock.
I can still hear my grandmother's unique words, "Yes! Liamen!" The taste is also good.


If anything, it feels like an old-fashioned, simple ramen.
The 750 yen ramen is now in the cheap category.
There are quite a lot of ingredients such as green onions, menma, pork belly, and cabbage.
You can add rice and pickles to the noodles for an additional 50 yen, but
Even though this rice was only 50 yen, it was a large portion and filled me up.


Translated from Japanese:

On the 23rd, ramen is 750 yen → 600 yen. Still a simple taste. Plenty of boiled cabbage too. Three large pieces of chashu, the size of a delicious chashu with a chewy texture...
