笑梟 (Fukuro in Nishi-Shinjuku)

肉そば家 笑梟


This shop, whose name means laughing owl, is just around the corner from my apartment. It is also right across the street from Shinjuku's Chuo Park, often lovingly referred to as Murder Park. The implication is that it is scary there at night. Best to cross the road and have a bowl.


Lunch time gets you a free bowl of rice. My kind of price!


This ramen wasn't bad. Nothing spectacular, but definitely a good spot to get lunch at if you work in the area.


Remember, ramen at it's base level is a hearty fast food for the working man. Gourmet ingredients and shops with hour long waits are not possible for the average Joe.
