Now operating a total of seven shops in Tokyo, Nogata's last best hope (at least when it comes to ramen) got started here. One of the leading lights on the 'ramen battleground' that is Kannana-dori and its surroundings, Hope offers its signature Nogata Hope Ramen (¥740) with a rare triple soup: chicken and vegetable mix, pure vegetable, and pork base. The resulting tonkotsu concoction is punchy and a little greasy – consider telling the staff that you want less fat ('abura sukuname').
