Kogashi Miso-men / ¥890
Ramen made with a miso base. The bitterness of the charred miso is just right, and also a little sweet. The soup is very hot so take care not to scald yourself!
Kogashi Shoyu-men / ¥890
Ramen made with a shoyu base. It’s a little less bitter than the Kogashi Miso-men. The sweetness of the finely chopped egg really brings out the flavor of the shoyu.
Rice with Char Siu / ¥150
This dish of broiled char siu on rice is best enjoyed eaten by adding the mustard on the side of the bowl bit by bit.
How to OrderThe staff will hand you an English-language menu if you speak to them in English, so ordering should be easy. First choose the kind of ramen you’d like, followed by the amount of noodles, and your order is complete.
