Afuri Ramen, a Must-Try Ramen Joint In Tokyo!

Afuri Ramen first opened its resto in Ebisu over 10 years ago. What sets them apart is that their ramen is made with chicken, "dashi" (fish broth), "konbu" (seaweed) and yuzu (a Japanese citrus). It's delicious and highly addictive!

Afuri Ramen (阿夫利・あふり ラーメン)

Afuri Ramen has 10 branches in Japan and in America: in Roppongi, Harajuku and, in Portland. It is one of the most popular ramen places in Tokyo!

Once you enter the resto, you have to select what you want to eat at the ticket vending machine. And then you can have a seat and someone will bring you your dish.
However, as this resto is quite popular, you probably will have to queue for a bit.

Ramen

afuri
Their signature dish is the Yuzu Shio Ramen and the Yuzu Shoyu Ramen. The first is made with chicken and dashi broth, yuzu (a Japanese citrus), and the latter has shoyu (soy sauce) as well.
They also have seasonal ramen and seasonal vegan ramen.
So even your vegetarian friends can find something to their liking. The vegan ramen is made with tons of vegetables, vegetable soup and mixed greens. So even the vegan or vegetarian ramen has a nice umami.

Tsukemen

Tsukemen(つけ麺)is ramen that you dip in a separate cold dipping sauce. There are different flavors, such as sweet, yuzu and spicy dipping sauce.

Side Orders

You can also choose the types of noodles you eat, such as thin noodles, or konjac noodles. Konjac is made from a Japanese yam root and is a healthier alternative to normal noodles.

If you're still not full after the ramen, you can get a small rice bowl with different types of toppings, such as grilled pork or shirasu (tiny sardines).
This practice is what Japanese call "Japanese risotto" as after putting the rice in the remaining broth, the rice absorbs the taste and flavours.

Drinks

The perfect accompaniment to ramen is, of course, beer! You should try the Kohaku no Toki Asahi beer. It's the perfect pairing!
