Shinjuku Gyoen Ramen Ouka

This restaurant opened in 2016 with a concern for those who have dietary restrictions, but still want to enjoy delicious ramen. It is still rather rare to be able to enjoy Halal or vegan ramen in Japan.
Their ramen is made with sea bream, wagyu, and fresh vegetables. Everything they serve is Halal!
They also have vegan ramen for those who do not consume any animal products.
This is quite a small restaurant with only around 12 seats so we highly recommend making a reservation if you want to avoid a long wait (1 to 3 hours). This place is even said to be the best Halal resto in Tokyo!


When you first walk in, you'll be greeted by friendly English speaking staff who will ask you to order from the vending machine. You insert money and you can choose from a variety of different types of ramen. Once you get your ticket, you hand it to the staff who will assign you a seat. Now, sit back, relax, and let the scent of the delicious broth tickle your appetite while you wait in anticipation.
The reservation dinner set menu is about 2,500 yen and comes with "tsukune" (a sort of grilled chicken meatball), ramen toppings and rice so you have "ochazuke" at the end of your meal. "Ochazuke" is when you pour broth or tea over rice, in this case, you pour the remaining broth of the ramen over the bowl of rice. It also comes with organic tea at the end.

The lunch menu is basically the same, but it doesn't come with a drink and "tsukune".
First, you should try the "tsukune" it is made with chicken thighs and some secret ingredients (after all, a chef doesn't reveal all of his secrets). Unlike what you can find at a yakitori restaurant, this tsukune is huge! You can dip into a spicy sauce for an added punch.
There is "espuma" on the ramen, made of meringue and yuzu, for the spicy ramen, it is made with Korean spices. It is suggested to first try the broth as is, then you can mix into the broth for a new tangy flavour.
You can also add some of the toppings over the ramen for a change of pace. There is a perfectly cooked soft-boiled egg, tender chicken with a crispy outside and some baby corn.
If you've managed to finish everything (the portion is fit for a king), you can pour the remaining broth over the rice to make a sort of Japanese risotto.
And the final touch is some organic fruity tea which is perfect after a nice bowl of spicy ramen. You feel refreshed and ready to go about your day to continue your sightseeing in Tokyo!
Also, if you have a hard time eating ramen with chopsticks, you should try it with a "spork"!

For vegans, there are spicy and non-spicy ramen dishes. The usual broth is made with sea bream and wagyu, which gives it a nice umami, however, if you're not a big fish fan, you should try the vegan ramen.


If you're Muslim or vegan and you want to know what all the fuss is about ramen in Japan, then be sure to try Ramen Ouka in Shinjuku to enjoy some really tasty ramen!

I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
