I’m not a huge fan of ramen but, this place Rocks.

We came for dinner at 7 on a Friday night and had to wait about 45 mins. Not sure if it’s worth the wait (they don’t take reservations). The Shiomaru Moto Sji is simply the best bowl of ramen I have ever had. If you’re still starving after one bowl, which most are, you can add a kae-dama (another ball of noodles). Now if you are longing for more after a second round, they also allow you to add a third ball of noddles, in which case they will also provide you with extra soup for free (but I would’t do this too often).

The Matcha Brulee (green tea pudding) is a good ending to your meal. Stay away from the fruit in champagne.
