Recommended bowl: Old school hidden gem

This family-run shop is hidden off the street inside the gates of the Yodobashi Seika Ichiba marketplace, right next to Iseya Shokudou. The shop opened in 1980 and moved to its current location in 1990. Catering to the workers from the market, the ramen here is simple, old school Tokyo style, involving a chicken and pork soup paired with classic shoyu tare. The noodles are specially ordered using an original recipe that calls for less kansui than normal. The noodles get softer quicker, and must be eaten fast. For this reason customers can order okawari (refill) ramen for just 130 yen. Both the wontonmen and tsukemen are recommended, as is the spicy powder and vinegar on the counter that can be mixed into the soup. Azumaya is all about authentic old school Japanese vibes, with a menu that hasn't been touched in over 30 years.
