    HOW TO ORDER RAMEN: Step 1. Select your ramen of choice and get ticket from the vending machine | Step 2: Give ticket to the chef and wait for your ramen to arrive


    1. AOBA GAKUGEI DAIGAKU: Classic Tsukemen (dry ramen)
    ADDRESS: 2-21-14 Takaban, Meguro-ku, Tokyo
    OPEN: 11AM - 11PM

    🍜BROTH: The broth includes shoyu, kelp, pork for richness, and most importantly, niboshi (dried boiled fish - sardines or anchovies).
    NOODLES: The broth is typically prepared first due to the amount of time it takes to prepare. The fresh noodles are boiled for a short period and placed in a bowl separately from the broth. The toppings go in last, on top of and into the broth.

    💸PRICE: 8.59 USD/950 JPY
    2. RAMEN NAGI BUTAO: Red Ramen + Black Ramen
    ADDRESS: 1 Chome-3-1 Higashi, Shibuya-ku, Tōkyō-to 150-0011
    OPEN: 11AM - 12AM | Sundays and Holidays: 11AM - 10PM

    🍜Ramen Nagi Butao has a few signature types of ramen: original (white); red ramen with minced pork, spicy miso and a little yakiniku sauce; black ramen with charred minced pork, squid, yogurt and garlic chips; and green ramen with cheese, bacon and basil.

    💸PRICE: 7.96 USD/880 JPY
    ADDRESS: 2 Chome-44-5 Kamimeguro, Meguro, Tokyo 153-0051
    OPEN: Weekdays: 11:30AM - 03:30PM + 05:30PM - 11:30PM | Weekends and Holidays: 11:30AM - 11:30PM

    🍜ZENTORO MABOMEN (SPICY TOFU RAMEN): You need douban (fermented broad beans and chili paste) and douchi (fermented black beans) to make this dish. It’s meant to be spicy and almost sticky. There should also be minced pork. Add thick ramen noodles to the mabo-dofu dish.

    🍜SANRATANMEN (HOT AND SOUR RAMEN): Black pepper, red peppers (tougarashi) and a sourness from vinegar come together in the broth. Toppings include wood ear mushrooms, bamboo shoots and tofu. Thinner noodles are used here.

    🍜CHICKEN RICH RAMEN: They use high-grade chicken with a lot of collagen. The broth is comprised of several vegetables, which are blended into the thick and creamy chicken broth. Add some lemon for acidity.

    4. MENYA FUJISHIRO: Chicken Broth Ramen
    ADDRESS: 2 Chome-3-1 Asakusa, Taitō, Tokyo
    OPEN: 11AM-11PM | Sunday: 11AM - 6:30PM
    🍜CHICKEN BROTH RAMEN: First, add soy sauce kelp and additional seasoning to broth. The main ingredient in the soup is chicken from Daisen, Japan (“Daisen-jidori”). Daisen is a mountainous area in Tottori, famous for its high-grade chicken. The soup includes roasted beef ribs and sardines. In addition to the standard egg, green onion, kamoboko (fish cake), and seaweed toppings, they sprinkle on fried garlic. The noodles are thin and straight.

    💸PRICE: 8.86 USD/980 JPY

    Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but currently call Vietnam home. I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. People either enjoyed my undeniable charm or enjoyed watching me eat things like coconut worms, and thus Best Ever Food Review Show came to be.

    I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer. If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I'm a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.

    Don’t forget to subscribe to Best Ever Food Review Show, so we can connect through food and travel and become Bestys!
