Time Out says

If you’re tired of having too many ramen options to choose from, this is the place for you. Menko Ushio gives you a simple choice between shiro (white) or kuro (black).

The shop is best known for its tori paitan soba – a cloudy, white chicken ramen (¥890) with a flavour reminiscent of pasta carbonara. In fact, the rich creamy chicken broth is finished off with toppings you normally see on a plate of pasta: bacon-wrapped asparagus grilled to a perfect crisp, a softly poached egg, broccoli, fried onion and bacon bits. If that’s not enough flavour for you, the shop recommends adding a dollop of their homemade garlic butter (¥100) and a dash of pepper on top. It makes for a wonderfully flavour-packed bowl of ramen that is inventive as it is delicious.
