First, buy a ramen ticket at the ticket machine. Put money into the machine and press the button of your ramen. Although they have no English menu, the ticket machine has pictures, so you can choose based on those. So choose your ramen based on this article, and then press the picture of it on the ticket machine. Note that you buy the ticket after entering the restaurant, so if there’s a line, wait until you can enter the restaurant before buying your ticket.
Ramen Suguru also offers seasonal ramen for limited periods of time and daily changing rice bowls.
*On the day I went to the restaurant, they had a pork belly with cartilage rice bowl.
They’re all delicious, so if you’ve been to it before, consider ordering a seasonal ramen. If you don’t know which button to press, ask the staff in Japanese:
Honjitsu no gentei menu wa naniga arimasuka? (What’s today’s special?)
If they have a special ramen or rice bowl for that day, the staff will tell you about it.
