龍の子 (Ryunoko in Harajuku)



Looking for tantanmen in touristy Harajuku?


Look no further than Ryunoko, which means the dragon's child.


Ryunoko does a dozen or so noodle dishes at lunch, but the tantanmen is their most popular.


It's your standard style with a mix of spicy and numbing Chinese herbs and spices to balance everything out.


You can't beat the location, right between a Starbucks and the famous Takeshita Dori, the street that runs from Harajuku Station to Omotesando. This street used to be filled with girls (and some boys) playing dress-up in gothic lolita fashion, but those days have dwindled for the most part. Now you'll find a lot of tourist using the street to make their way to the other end, where Japanese street fashion boutiques offer limited edition apparel with overseas resale appeal.

Anyways, I don't hang out in Harajuku much.
