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!

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.
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.
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.
