Tokyo is a city of over 100,000 restaurants, and sometimes it feels like half of them are serving the same dish: ramen. This quintessential Japanese dish comes in various guises, from meaty Hakata-style tonkotsu (pork broth) ramen and the mouth-numbingly fiery spicy ramen to even vegan and pork-free options.
Whether you're a fan of the soupy noodles or prefer the dry-style tsukemen that comes with a side of dipping broth, here are some of Tokyo's best ramen, covering everything from the classic to the modern – including a Michelin-starred option, Konjiki Hototogisu. Happy slurping!
