Come for the ramen, stay for the kakigori. That’s right, this homely Ogikubo restaurant specialises in two of Japan’s classic treats. The store’s creative take on ramen includes its renowned Setouchi lemon ramen, where thin wheat noodles are combined with steaming chicken broth, and topped with an ample seasoning of lemon, salt, black pepper and chicken chashu – a unique spin on the more traditional pork chashu.
If you prefer something on the conventional side, you’ll find ramen made on a soy sauce base and a chicken and sardine base. The artful seasonal kakigori are a favourite for a sweet ending to a meal.
