喜楽 (Kiraku in Shibuya)

喜楽

Kiraku is old school, in the scummiest part of Shibuya; Dogenzaka.  Dogenzaka, affectionately called love-hotel-hill.

Speaking of love, you're going to love this ramen.  Completely unexpected.

Like I said, old school.  You're not expected to finish the soup, as doing so would mean a stomach full of that layer of oil.  Focus on the noodles and wontons.  Still, though, the oil-laden soup was a lighter shoyu with plenty of onion and garlic seasoning.

I stumbled into this place on a blazing hot day this summer. I finished the bowl despite the heat. A delicious and horrible decision.
