篝 (Kagari in Ginza)


I need to make a new best-of. Kagari needs to be on people's hit list.


Only a few weeks old, this shop looks more like a pricey sushi bar than a ramen joint. The nondescript back-alley can barely contain the line, which draws stares from the passersby, most on their way to buy a new LV handbag or Jimmy Choos.


The seasonal vegetable topping is a necessary addition to the silky rich tori paitan. Creamy and refined, this shop is at home among the high end upper crust that is Ginza.


The niboshi ramen and tsukemen are highly praised as well.

Bonus! I shot a TV show with AKB48 member Rena Nozawa here. Check it out!
