Ramen-ya Toy Box @ Higashi-nippori
As Ramen is always so popular here in Tokyo, you can find not famous yet good quality ramen shops easily wherever you live/stay. So I did. I found another my favorite ramen shop, which is accessible from my place. Some of you might know but my son adores trains. Luckily, local and the last streetcar in Tokyo called “Sakura Tram” runs near our neighborhood. So, it’s always our family’s pleasure to find good restaurant along the line. When we found this ramen shop, we (maybe my husband and I only) were soooo HAPPY!
The name of this ramen shop is Ramen-ya Toy Box. How cute and exciting the name sounds? (If my son understands English well, he might be interested in more!) At first, no one can guess this is a Ramen shop. But yes, this is actually a ramen shop. There are only 8 seats in a shop so be ready to queue beforehand.
After entering the shop, you will see ticket machine on the right side. Their popular ramen is Shoyu ramen (Soy sauce based ramen) so I decided. It’s always fun to see the work of the chefs. Since this shop is tiny, all guests can see their works from their seats. The color of shoyu ramen is so clear but has rich flavor from dashi soup stock and good fat. The fat which floats on top of Shoyu ramen looked somehow elegant and beautiful for me. So as taste! I have never felt the shoyu ramen which has deep love from the chef. Every time I sip the soup, my body warms up and my stomach became satisfied. I definitely would go there and taste again!
Oops! Forgot to take photo with ramen. (& Sorry for my messy hair!)
This tasted yummy as well!
