Slightly outside the central area of Tokyo, Ramen Koike has, more or less, two types of ramen on the menu. There are two other flavors that are only available for dinnertime, but the ones that are offered throughout the day draw in the most customers.
The niboshi ramen is the lightest tasting ramen of the two. Its nice niboshi tint is evident in the clear soup. Even though quite a lot of umami is pulled from the niboshi, the ramen bowl has absolutely no fishy aftertaste.
The most famous ramen of Ramen Koike is the noukou ramen, which is a type of toripaitan ramen — a broth style where the chicken fat and bones are simmered continuously, for a long period of time, until all the fats are broken down into a flavorful, rich, thick soup.
The other two bowls that are only available in the evening attract their own special set of customers. The standard toppings are included in all ramen bowls: roast pork, chicken meatball, chicken breast, nori sheet, and garnish.
Whatever ramen style you're feeling, be it a light and refreshing one or a rich and creamy bowl, Ramen Koike is here to serve you what your heart (or stomach) desires.
Reservations not available; walk-ins only.
