There are thousands of Ramen restaurants in Tokyo.
You can enjoy various types of soup flavors such as Shoyu (soy sauce), Miso (fermented bean paste), Shio (salt) and Tonkotsu (pork). There is also a dish called Tsukemen which noodles and soup are served separately.
Order the Food
- Many Ramen restaurants require customers to buy food tickets beforehand from the vending machine.
If you want some toppings, buy tickets for those as well if sold separately.
Give tickets to the staff to order.
- At some restaurants, you can choose the amount and the firmness of noodles or the thickness of the soup.
How to Eat Ramen
- Noodles and soup are hot. Slurp to eat so you do not get burned.
- The seasonings (garlic, sesame, pepper, etc.) that are prepared on the table are free to add to your ramen if you would like. Do not add too much!
- For Tsukemen, pick up the bite-size portion of noodles to dip into the soup each time you eat.
