    Hayashi Ramen

    Ajitama Ramen

    Ajitama Ramen

    People say you can’t speak on Shibuya ramen without eating at Hayashi first. If the constant line doesn’t tip you off, then the fact that this ramen shop has popped up on lists like Tabelog’s Ramen Top 100 and Tokyo Ramen of the Year should let you know that Hayashi is the real deal. The interior is simple and relaxed, and if you say shio aji de when you hand the staff your meal ticket, then you’ll get a bowl of Shio Ramen, a secret menu item, for no extra charge. They only offer three things on their menu: Ramen, Ajitama Ramen, and Yakibuta Ramen. But the bamboo shoots in every bowl are top-notch.

    Opening Hours:
    11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday, or until the soup runs out

    Most Popular Dish:
