Ramen

Kiraku

喜楽

A long-standing ramen restaurant founded in 1952 located close to JR Shibuya Station. This popular restaurant sees a constant line of customers waiting to get in; there's counter seating on the first floor and table seating on the second. The restaurant's Chukamen Chinese noodles are its most popular; the shoyu (soy sauce)-based broth goes perfectly with the kogashi-negi spring onion topping and chewy medium-thickness flat noodles. Other menu options include moyashimen bean sprouts with noodles, chashumen noodles with chashu roasted pork, gomokumen chow mein noodles in a shio (salt) broth, tanmen noodles with vegetables, and moyashi wanton (bean sprouts and wanton soup). Kiraku also offers a full lineup of side dishes, including yaki-gyoza fried pot stickers, niku-yasai meat and vegetable stir-fry, and gyoza with rice.

    Never ever

    Tiny place, crammed in and average. Something out of HK street food stalls

    The shop has been around 60+ years and is located is the very seedy part of Shibuya. Need I go on? Despite this, there was still a line out the door. Probably because it only seats around 18 upstairs... more

    We had the soy-based ramen and gyoza. Tasted OK, nothing spectacular. Situated on the shaddy love hotel hill Dogenzaka. Not easy to find, had to ask around a few locals. more
