Menya Kaijin 麺屋海神
This is the ramen joint of your dreams if you love, light tasting ramen with a deep seafood taste. The broth is without compare. It's made of many types of different kinds of fish bones. The name of the restaurant means "god of the sea" (kaijin) for good reasons! It's located near the Shinjuku's Station South East Exit.
The soup has a beautiful golden color and the ramen has unusual toppings such as shrimp and chicken cartilage dumplings, all of which go wonderfully well with the soup. Ramen is about ¥1,000 per order.
You can order some spicy versions of the ramen. And notice the yaki onigiri on the side! It's topped with a special kind of pickled fish paste which again adds some exquisite seafood taste to the meal. This is a very unusual combination for a ramen shop. You might only able to get this at Kaijin, so it's definitely worth the visit for that too.
Ramen topped with clams, seaweed and cucumber slices is also on the menu!
You can get extra toppings at a little extra cost. Some people can't have ramen without having their soft-boiled eggs!
Menya Kaijin is a must-go ramen joint for those who love ramen and even for those who don't! If you usually think ramen is too rich, then try this one! It's loaded with intense natural flavors from the sea.
