新福菜館 (Shinpukusaikan in Azabujuban)

新福菜館 麻布十番店


One of my favorite bowls in Kyoto is at Shinpukusaikan, just a few minutes from the main JR Kyoto Station.


Now that same dark shoyu flavor can be found in Tokyo.


I have to say that I miss that atmosphere of the original shop in Kyoto, with its long line and frantic vibe. This shop, in fashionable Azabujuban, feels very new.


The pitch-black ramen, though, is on point. One of the deepest bowls in Japan, thanks to thier secret soy sauce tare. That tare also makes it into the fried rice. I remember wishing I had eaten the famous fried rice at the original shop, and wasn't going to make the same mistake twice. Some amazing stuff.


This was, like so many of my posts lately, for a shooting with #TokyoExtra.

Thanks for watching!

The ticket machine shows the popularity order of the top row as 2, 1, 3. Is the #1 the black ramen? (¥1100)
Which button is the fried rice?

The top 3 buttons are for ramen and fried rice sets.
