Recommended bowl: Fried rice & tanmen

The menu here is inspired by Master Hiroshi Imano's former favorite Chinese restaurant, Aji Ichiban in Mita, which closed down years ago. The house specialty is not ramen but the cha-han (fried rice), which almost all customers order in some form. The rice used is a special variety, with a slightly harder grain than regular rice. A few versions of cha-han are available, including one served with pork back fat. The ramen go-to is tanmen, an old school, blue collar bowl of shio soup piled with vegetable like cabbage and bean sprouts. Noodles special ordered. Open since 2006, with a second branch in Danang, Vietnam open since 2014.
