味噌屋八郎商店 (Hachiro Shoten in Shinjuku)

味噌屋八郎商店

The name of this shop might be Hachi Roshoten, but to me it is just the nantsuttei-miso-place. Nantsuttei is of course the mega-famous Kyushu-style ramen shop with the biker-turned-chef owner. For a run-down on the dude check out Ramenate.

This one borrows some inspiration from the original, and a heavy pork soup is mixed with miso before being topped with some of the shop's signature burnt garlic oil.

It is decent, and might be the best miso ramen in a three block radius.

If you look at the sheer number of ramen shops in a three block radius, you'll see that that is some sort of a compliment.

I think the odor of Ramen Jiro next door can be smelled inside. It can definitely be smelled outside.
