The snapper painted on the walls of the interior and even exterior is a giveaway as to what the main selling factor of this ramen restaurant is. Famous for serving fish broth ramen, especially madai (snapper) style, Madai Ramen Mengyo has earned a spot among the most intriguing ramen shops of Tokyo.
The line snaking out of the entrance says as much. It seems no one can resist a bowl of snapper ramen. The white, milky and opaque soup is the result of intense simmering of the snapper, extracting as much of the umami flavor as possible. The process done by this restaurant even eliminates any fishy aftertaste.
Mengyo is also known for delivering specialty menu items every now and then. The chef is always eager to experiment with different kinds of fish to create unique broths. One to look out for is the ramen purely made out of conger eel. The dish is served with just noodles and soup, and a side of a donburi topped with grilled eel.
Regardless of the small, cramped space, Mengyo draws an impressive crowd daily. Whether it is the signature madai ramen, a specialty ramen, or even the noko madai ramen which is made of half madai broth and half clear chicken broth, customers are always returning to get their Mengyo ramen fix.
