Hayashi Ramen: A Must-Try Joint In Shibuya


Hayashi in Shibuya is an unavoidable restaurant in the area for any ramen junky. It serves a simple yet really savory type of ramen. Make sure to try it out when you are in Shibuya.

Feel free to follow favy!


This is one of the most highly regarded ramen joints in the highly competitive ramen world of Shibuya. Just walking by Hayashi, you can smell the delicious scent of the fish-based broth that makes the soup.
It takes about a 5-minute walk to get there from the Shibuya station. Rain or shine, it's pretty common to see people lining up in front of the restaurant. If you want to eat there, you're better to go outside of the peak hours. The restaurant is opened for lunchtime only from 11:30 to 15:30.

There are 10 counter seats inside. People eat quickly on average so the turnover rate is fast.

Exquisite Deep-Tasting Umami Ramen

The soup is a little thick, the straight noodles are on the thick side, you get a nice portion of grilled and seasoned pork slices, and the bamboo shoots are quite big too.

The soup here is pork, chicken, and seafood-based. Having both ground animals and seafood in it makes the umami even deeper and more complex. Plus there is also some soy-sauce in it, so that's why the taste is pronounced, but still, it isn't too oily. It's the perfect ramen for the summer when you want something salty but not too heavy.
And there are the perfectly cooked "hanjuku" eggs that complete this outstanding bowl of ramen. You have to try it for yourself. It might not look like something exceptional at a glance but you'll understand why this place is so popular when you try it.
