Recommended bowl: Japanese underground

Nestled in an underground shopping center filled with various retail shops is Hyottoko, a simple open-air ramen shop with just a counter and an extremely narrow kitchen space. There's a ticket machine out front but basically the customers just stand and wait right there until one of the seats frees up. The sign advertises 'wahu ramen', or Japanese style ramen. You can get regular 'wafu' style or with yuzu. The chefs move about effeciently in the insanely cramped kitchen and make the bowls right in front of the customers. The soup is a light shio, topped with juicy pork belly and diced negi and mitsuba. The yuzu is a nice touch and brings out the flavors.
