八雲 (Yakumo in Nakameguro)



Yakumo lies on the rarely visited outskirts of the giant concrete river in Nakameguro. There are a few good ramen shops along said river, but it's in your best interests to keep walking until you reach this shop.


Since opening in 1999, this shop has garnered a lot of praise for it's product. The soup is an excellent mix of the standard fare, with a choice of white or black shoyu, or a hidden choice of mix. Ask for it at the counter.


But what really sets Yakumo above the bar are the wontons. The shop makes both standard pork dumplings and shrimp dumplings. Ordering the wantanmen will get you 6, a very generous amount in this day and age.


Again, go for the mix. Mix soup, mix wontons.
