Nagi Niboshio Ramen is a popular chain which, as the name suggests, serves piping hot ramen bowls. Their new Shimokita outpost is the size of a parking space and pulls in noodle-lovers with its no-fuss menu. Cheap and cheerful, you're welcomed with the sound of happy diners loudly slurping on thick bouncy noodles swimming in a rich, flavourful umami anchovy broth. You can select a lighter broth too, but the former is recommended by the staff (and who are we to argue with them). Huge round slices of fatty char siu pork is the topping of choice, while other options include scallions and salted boiled eggs. Pots filled with mini anchovies are placed on the table should you wish to use them as a garnish. If you're tired of ramen or want to try something different, they also serve rice dishes. Ordering is done via an easy-to-use machine and dishes usually arrive within five minutes from the open plan kitchen. This is Shimokitazawa’s go-to place for a quick satisfying bite and also doubles as the ultimate hangover cure. What's not to love?
