    Lucky Peach recommended. "pork-base that’s cooked in a blazing hot wok with flames licking up the sides" "only has eight or nine seats" "Kikanbo’s miso ramen has both Sichuan peppercorns and chili peppers" "even have an oni (devil) spice level that’s the ultimate challenge for thrill-seekers."

    Lucky Peach recommended. Open 11am–3pm, 5–9pm (or until the soup runs out). Closed Sundays and holidays. "they’ll ask you what size portion of noodles you want. Sho is small, or about two hundred grams; nami is regular, or about three hundred grams; omori is large, or about four hundred grams. You pay the same," " laced with chunks of pork, and a pile of smoked fish powder sits on top" "Arrive when they open at 11am or prepare to wait"

    This is Tsuta, the first Japanese ramen shop to get a Michelin star. "Small, unassuming space, close to the Sugamo station" "no reservations" "go early, around 7:30 a.m. wait outside. A man will come out with a handful of tickets. He said come back between 12 and 1 pm.” "He took a 1,000-yen deposit" "best bowl of shoyu (soy sauce-based) ramen I’d ever eaten. The broth was deep, intense and slightly sweet."
