The Persian fellow running this individualist ramen shop close to Higashi-Koenji subway station makes sure that all of his creations are free of additives and similar chemicals while serving up delicious, healthy bowls of noodles. The top choice here is the BiaBia Special (¥1,000), which comes in a 'double soup' made of chicken and dried seafood, and is seasoned with tuna and three kinds of sea salt. The homemade noodles are on the thin side, while toppings include chicken chashu, boiled eggs and pistachios. Finally, the soup gets its red accent and sour sweetness from dried zereshk berries, a popular Iranian ingredient.
