One of the representatives of Japanese chicken soup Ramen

It's located near Ryogoku station which is their first shop.
They also have 4 more shops in Japan and also some shops in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Canada, and Australia.
They are supposed to be one of the first ones that started to make Ramen with chicken based soup.

The Ryogoku shop looks very old and small, but there is always a row of people waiting to have their Ramen.
I always try to go there when they open the shop, but there always are some people already waiting before me.
And you have to be careful to visit there early enough because they close their shop when they run out of soup for the day, and it often happens.

Since it's chicken based soup, it's milder than pork bone based ones.
I would say it's somewhat sweet and has the nice mild flavor of chicken oil.

- Regular Ramen: 680yen
- Ramen with egg: 780yen
- Ramen with egg and Aosa sea-weed: 980yen
- Ramen with egg, sea-weed and green onion: 1,180yen
- Ramen with Aosa sea-weed: 880yen
- Ramen with fresh mustard: 780yen
- Ramen with pork, Aosa sea-weed, and egg: 1,380yen
- Kaedama, noodle refill: 100yen

And this time, what I had was Ramen with egg.
Their egg is nicely soft-boiled and just sooo good.

One of the uncommon characteristics of this Ramen is that they have sea lettuce as one of the toppings.
It completely matches with their soup and slightly adds some salty and sea flavor to the bowl.

Their shop is very small with about 10 seats, and the atmosphere is a bit hard to step in for the first time.
So, large groups cannot be seated at the same table.
But I guarantee that once you try their bowl of Ramen, you'll see why this small place has been able to keep gathering people over the years.
I'm afraid that there is no English menu, so if you are not fluent in Japanese, you should probably just say "Ramen" and you will get what you want.
