Afuri (阿夫利 原宿)


Afuri ramen in Harajuku. The spirit of this Afuri ramen started from the Mount Afuri in Kanagawa Prefecture. The natural water from the mountain is the key ingredient to the fine and delicate broth of Afuri ramen. The Yuzu Shio Ramen is their signature ramen and you can see why the broth is their thing! And the hand made thin noodle works well with this soup! Writing it makes me hungry already! It usually is a line but if you go outside of the Busy lunch time, wait is not too bad.

Ichiran Ramen (一蘭)

Alone Time for your ramen

Ichiran is the chain ramen store came from the southern Japan, which is known for its delicious porkbone soup with thin noodles. This place is little different in terms of how you will experience the ramen. You first buy the the ticket from the vending machine and give it to the waiter. And then you get seated to your individual ramen space. You then fill out the form with your choice such as fatty/less fatty soup, or aldente noodle/well cooked, normal or even super aldente noodle, yes to chashu pork or not, green onion or not, garlic or not.  If you wanna copy my recipe, take a look at the picture and copy. Then,  you wait and get your ramen and enjoy your ramen. I like to have my noodle super aldente. I also order another noodle called Kaedama so when you are done with the noodle, I get another round of noodles to put in my soup. They really want you to focus and taste your ramen. I think there may be a table to sit with your friends depending on the location. But why not put yourself into this situation to have a 1 on 1 with your ramen. And good thing's 24 hours open for most of the location, so even the late night after some drinks, it even tastes better!!!
