Menya Itto Ramen

Menya Itto is a ramen powerhouse located in Tokyo's Shin-Koiwa area.

They're actually best known for rich, chicken-heavy tsukemen (dipping ramen). But they do fantastic bowls of ramen as well...think of this instant ramen as a ramen spinoff. Just like at their shop, there's a beautifully rich chicken flavor in the soup. There's also a pleasant tanginess from the soy sauce seasoning. But what's most unique is the scallop oil that is mixed in - this takes it to a whole other level!
