Time Out says
This homely Ogikubo restaurant offers creative takes on ramen, cooling kakigori (shaved ice desserts) and aromatic curries. It’s best known, however, for its soupless lemon soba (¥950), thin noodles served dry or ‘maze’-style, mixed with toppings and sauce on a plate rather than in a bowl. If you prefer something soupy, go for the shoyu-based (¥900) or chicken and sardine-based ramen (¥1,100).
Neiroya also whips up an addictively moreish soup-like curry made with its signature ramen dashi (Japanese-style stock); a half-order is more than substantial enough for a decent feed. Keep an eye on Neiroya’s Twitter for news on its seasonal kakigori; you’ll blow most of your ¥1,000 budget on one of these artful desserts – but it’s worth it.
