Coriander Miso Ramen With A Good Feel Cause! Shinbu Sakiya in Shibuya

If you're looking for delicious ramen, but want something a little bit special, Shinbu Sakiya in Shibuya has you covered! This place is a bit of a gem on Dogenzaka. I like to think of them as a delicious ramen joint with a good cause, as they support a Cambodia NGO supporting children in need. If that's not enough of a reason to head here, the ramen here is also next level!

Shinbu Sakiya on Dogenzaka, Shibuya

After eating all the ramen under sun you start to wonder if that's it... but then there comes a new place kinda surprises you!

Enter Shinbu Sakiya, a friendly ramen joint on near the top of Dogenzaka, about a 5 minute walk from Shibuya station.

Walking up towards Shinbu Sakiya you'll pass many other restaurants and eateries, however don't be lured astray from your mission - eating a one of a kind ramen dish in Tokyo!

Now before you head in to the restaurant and take a seat, look towards your right and you'll see the ticket vending machine. Everything you can order is on here. There's even English on the menu which helps us foreigners out!

I order the Coriander Miso Ramen with homemade chili oil. It costs 1030 yen and is totally worth the somewhat of a splurge!

If you're feeling thirsty you can also order beer, whisky highballs, chuhai, and coke with the press of a button!
Inside you'll notice a warm and friendly atmosphere. The guys in the kitchen a super friendly and offer a traditional Japanese ramen shop hospitality. Notice the "Irassshai!" as you walk in (meaning "welcome").

Hand you're ticket over and take a seat. They'll bring you an "oshibori" (wet towel) to wipe you hands, and your face if you fancy it.

Now if you're a little clumsy like me make sure to grab one of the paper aprons/bibs. It'll totally save your shirt from any splashes!

In just a few minutes you'll bowl of deliciousness will arrive and you're ready to dig in! Make sure you give the soup a try before you mix everything up!

It's loaded with coriander and the homemade chili oil clearly visible on top - I love spicy stuff! There's also a terrifically tender piece of char siu pork placed neatly on the side. Underneath is bean sprouts and al dente egg noodles.

It's definitely a unique mix of flavours with savoury miso soup base with ingredients traditionally not really used in Japanese cooking - coriander and chili. Combined, you get a tasty South East Asian & Japanese Ramen dish!

As you get further down into the bowl and through the noodles you'll notice that the soup has taken a different flavour. As you mix through the coriander the soup absorbs the flavours and gives a beautiful new touch to the dish. YUM!

One thing to note about Shinbu Sakiya is that for every dish served at the restaurant 2 yen goes towards a local NGO based in Cambodia that supports children with education and other resources. Now you may think 2 yen isn't that much but as this place makes a tonne of ramen every day it totally adds up! Just eating here is a good cause - not just for your palate, but also less fortunate children in Cambodia.

If you want to make a larger donation just let them know!
After your meal why not hit the pavement and take a stroll around the streets in Shibuya. Better yet, why not head back down to the Shibuya scramble crossing and attempt to cross it in a straight line!
