Ichiran Ramen

Ichiran is possibly the best ramen chain restaurant in Japan. The restaurant started in Fukuoka in 1966. It was a local favorite there but did not expand into a chain until 1993. People then quickly recognized the quality of Ichiran's natural tonkotsu ramen and its popularity exploded from there.
The secret to its success is perhaps the spicy powder and the flour-based noodles made by Ichiran itself. And the deep flavour of their soups is just irresistable!

Menu And Experience

When you go to Ichiran, your first stop is not your seat but the vending machine. Most people choose the standard ramen at 790 yen on which you can add some extra toppings if you like. A half-boiled egg is 130 yen, extra pork slices is 180 yen.
Once you've selected your order, you'll receive your order ticket.
Get seated wherever you want on the counter seats of the restaurant. The place is tiny and every seat is seperated by little partitions so you get your privacy while you eat. If you are with a friend the partitions can be removed.
What's nice at Ichiran is that your ramen is extremelly customizable! Once you give your order ticket, you'll receive an order sheet from which you can select the level of richness of your broth, the amount of garlic and how hard your noodles will be among many other choices. You get exactly the bowl of ramen you want evey time!
Soon after you give your order sheet, your customized ramen will be served and the little curtain in front of you will be pulled down so that you get total privacy! No peeking from the kitchen staff while you indulge in your ramen!
The standard ramen is what you should get. Simply customize it the way you like. If you are really hungry add an egg and chachu (pork slices).
And of course a cold beer (590 yen) is always a good accompaniement to a rich bowl of ramen!
Finally, Ichiran has a fairly popular matcha tofu pudding for 390 yen to satisfy your sweet tooth if you are still hungry after that!
