Time Out says

Located a brisk walk away from Musashi-Sakai Station on the Chuo line, this ramen shop is easily identified by its yellow-and-red-striped awning. In fact, Chinchintei is hailed as the ancestor of abura soba, which is essentially ramen served without soup.

Chinchintei has offered the same menu since 1965 and is always bustling with customers. Its signature abura soba (¥700) looks extremely simple and is served with medium-thick noodles topped with menma bamboo shoots, chashu pork and naruto fish paste. At the bottom of the bowl is a special sauce full of meaty flavours, intended for mixing with the noodles.

Every table is equipped with house-made chilli oil and vinegar, allowing you to freely customise the flavour of your dish. Additional toppings like raw eggs (¥50), flavoured eggs (¥100) and spring onions (¥100) are also available. Every ramen fan should visit this 'holy site' at least once.
