A courageous challenger that joined the Ikebukuro ramen war in 2014, Rokkando won popularity as soon as it opened. This café-style shop banks on simplicity, with the seafood-based soup made completely without additives and MSG. Their health-conscious dishes are available in shoyu (soy sauce) and shio (salt) versions – both nicely balanced – and come with a number of flavourful toppings. The popular Shio Green-men (¥850) is a quirky creation, with euglena kneaded into the chewy noodles, giving them a distinct green colour. Chunky chashu, yuzu and mitsuba leaf are served on top, while extra toppings can be selected off the lengthy side menu. Try using the flavoured oils at your table for taste experiments.
