ソラノイロ NIPPON (Soranoiro NIPPON at the Tokyo Ramen Street)

I'm happy to announce that one of my favorite shops, Soranoiro, has opened a 3rd outlet. This one is inside the Tokyo Ramen Street, a collection of eight shops within Tokyo's newly remodeled Tokyo Station.

I don't think I even need to talk about this one, the above picture of their Special Edo-Style Chukasoba is enough.

As is this one of their vegan ramen.

The menu here is reflective of their main shop, with just enough switched up to make it a different beast. The chukasoba has thinner noodles, thin strips of menma, and a delectable chunk of kakuni stewed pork. The price is a bit high at 1100 yen, but you really get a lot of value for that 特製. Tokusei means special.

Nice work Miyazaki-san.

Soon they will have an Okinawan style shio ramen and a vegan tantanmen.

This shop space used to be for Shichisai. And while I am sad to see them go, Soranoiro is a worthy successor.

Nice design. Tokyo Station is a crazy place, with millions of people using it daily. It's nice to be able to relax for a few minutes and enjoy a slurp.

Yes, I am biased. Anyone with a Soranoiro sticker on their phone must be a fan. Just above Den.

Tokyo Ramen Street is always changing. Some of the shops, like Rokurinsha, will never leave.
