Time Out says
Also operating a branch in Ebisu, this noodle joint is famous for its abura-soba (ramen without soup), made with a dense but MSG-free fish stock. Sit down at the L-shaped counter and choose from standard ramen, tsukemen or the above-mentioned signature dish – or go for a monthly special, the most eye-popping of which is the Niboshi-Jiro Ramen. Topped with a big pile of bean sprouts and green onion, the dish is based on a mild pork broth mixed with soup extracted from dried sardines. For some extra fun, try the popular squid ink curry (¥300) on the side.
