Menkoidokoro Isoji: A Little Gem Of A Ramen Joint In Yoyogi

Menkoidokoro is located just a 3-minute walk from the Yoyogi Station. It is easy to miss because of its simple traditional storefront and the fact that is located in a quiet residential area.
The restaurant has only counter seats but unlike many ramen restaurants where you feel as if you should be devouring your ramen bowl as fast as possible, this restaurant has a calm and relaxing atmosphere. The kind owners welcome customers who want to take their time to savor their ramen.

Generous Portions And A Soup With A Rich Broth

Their signature dish is the Chuka Soba at ¥940. The portions are generous, so if you've worked up and appetite, it's the place to go. As you can see, there are three thick pieces of chashu pork in there. You also have a full egg that is cooked hanjuku style (half boiled), some seaweed and bamboo shoots.
The soup has this rich deep taste because it is made from both seafood and meat. It is a mix of chicken, pork, beef, dried sardines and other seafood. This gives it, as the Japanese say, a taste rich in umami and makes it very addictive.

Homemade Chewy Noodles

The noodles, which are made from tapioca flour, have their own fans. People love them because they are very chewy and staves off your hunger for a long time. A regular size bowl has 210g of noodles and you can get a medium size bowl of 315g at no extra cost. The large size is 420g and is only an extra ¥100.

Look At These Toppings

The chashu is made from Japanese pork. It's tender and juicy and they aren't at all stingy with it.
And look at how just perfectly cooked this egg is. Simmered in the broth, the outer part is solid and rich in taste, and the yolk is just a little soft a runny.


If you are a ramen fan, you should definitely try out Mekoidokoro next time you are in Yoyogi. The ramen has a deep rich flavor with lots of toppings and the owners are extremely kind and welcoming.
