This is one of the more unique ramen eateries in Tokyo as their ramen is served with a bowl of rice,
which you have to eat with the remaining broth from your bowl of ramen!
Also, the serving is pretty huge (you can even upsize your ramen to large) AND it comes with grilled chicken and yakitori as part of the set.
We definitely recommend visiting this place on an empty tummy or you can opt for a smaller portion if you’re not feeling exceptionally hungry!

5. Homemade Udon Noodles KINEYA MUGIMARU
If you’re flying in to/out of Tokyo via Narita Airport, and have some time to kill or a stomach to fill, don’t forget to try the halal udon in the airport! One of our writers tried the beef udon and she said it was the most delicious one ever! She loved that the noodles were very springy and the broth was just right – not too salty for her liking. Her cravings for udon were finally satiated when she had this! To place an order, decide on the toppings for the udon as well as the size. You will then be served with a bowl of udon with toppings sans broth. Then, pick your own onigiri and tempura (self-service). Make payment and then proceed to the dipping sauce station and dispense as much (or little) as you like.
Opening Hours: 7.30am to 9pm (Last order at 8.30pm)
