Ramen Restaurant
$$
“Basic wooden counters and you buy your lunch ticket from a vending machine, but this is among Tokyo’s more refined bowls. It’s 100% chicken soup with an excellent chicken chashu topping. A great option for people who can’t eat the usual pork chashu that comes with most ramen. One bowl comes with a couple of slices of chicken chashu and pork chashu, but if you ask for it without the pork, you'll get an extra piece of the excellent chicken chashu instead.”
