けやき (Keyaki in Hiroo)

けやき



Hiroo is home to some of the most prominent embassies, and therefore one of the wealthier parts of town. The little bistros in the area are excellent, as they probably cater to Europeans with sophisticated palates. Rare imported cheeses, fine wine, all that jazz. And then there is this ramen shop. Next to the Lamborghini dealer.



An easy to read English menu, as expected.



And a poor bowl, as expected.

Would an excellent ramen shop be popular with the upper-crust expat community? Probably not.

I am French, and I love cheese and wine! Speaking of which…your recent "reviews" have been pretty cheesy and whiny. #sophomoric Step it up, son.

Brian said...

Mathieu with the burn! Yeah, I will step it up sooner or later.

Hey Mathieu give the guy a break...or probably not, as he just broke a leg.

Anyways Brian I think Gogyou is near Hiroo and can be a good recommendation. Actually I went there because of your recommendation. That kagoshi miso was just fantastic. Thanks!

I don't agree. There are very good ramen shops in Hiroo. And expats love ramen too. You should learn to look the right places (like the one on the second floor of the post office).
