The wait to get into this famous Shirakawa ramen shop might get rather lengthy due to its slow customer turnover time, but every second of it is justified once you've tried a bowl of Ichiban Ichiban’s noodles. Run by a chef that used to cook for a famous Fukushima restaurant, this shop has built twice the popularity of his old place due to its meticulously-prepared ramen.
With only counter seats, customers are able to watch over the preparations of their much-awaited noodles. The noodles used here are hand-made daily on green bamboo, and the broth is made out of marudori chicken and soy sauce to create the rich flavors that will linger even after you're done with the meal. The textures and taste come together perfectly. The special chuka soba and ajitama Chinese soba are the top dishes on the menu.
On top of their main noodle dishes, Ichiban Ichiban's chashu are crispy and fresh. There are three flavors available: pork round, breast meat, and chicken breast. Their wontons are wrapped only when they've been ordered, to maintain their freshness..
With gentle and flavorful broth, and chewy, filling noodles, there's nothing quite like the Chinese-style ramen and appetizers served at Ichiban Ichiban.
Reservations not available; walk-ins only.
