2. Tsukemen TETSU Shinagawa-ten つけめん TETSU 品川店
For some darn good tsukemen, head to Testu. The deep and flavorful soup stock is made from small dried sardines (niboshi) and seafood, creating an excellent taste! The noodles are wonderfully chewy and thick, and they are the perfect match for the richness of the soup.
3. Hirugao EX ひるがおEX
Hirugao EX is located inside of a food court, but don't let that put you off! The shop's signature is its salt ramen, which is different from the salt ramen you will find at other ramen restaurants. Here, the soup is seafood-based and is packed with delicious, slightly sweet umami that will linger on your palate. If you want to try a new type of ramen that you've probably never had before, this is a good option!
4. Ramen Jiro ラーメン二郎 品川店
Ramen Jiro is a very famous Tokyo ramen chain that is known for its pork ramen topped with a mountain of bean sprouts. If you've never tried it, it should definitely go on your to-try ramen list. The soup is rich and fatty, and the chashu is wonderful. Like most locations, the Shinagawa Ramen Jiro can be quite popular, especially at peak lunch and dinner times, so expect that you might have to stand in line for a bit.
5. Nantsuttei なんつッ亭 品川店
The specialty at this ramen shop is the above-pictured 'Ma-yu Tonkotsu Ramen.' Ma-yu is the black oil that is made from scorched garlic and sesame oil. It adds a wonderful depth to the flavor of the pork bone soup that is a treat to enjoy. This bowl is definitely rich, and you'll want a nice beverage to wash it down!
