Recommended bowl: Masked ramen master

Master Tomonori Oikawa trained under the legendary Ichijou-san at Ganko before opening Fukumen in 2008. When the shop first debuted, the chefs would wear old school Japanese wrestling masks all day while they cooked. There is a mask on display outside of the shop entrance now, but the staff no longer wear them in the kitchen (except on Halloween). Fukumen's soup is shoyu made from pork, chicken, gyokai and shellfish. Aside from the regular menu, the gentei offerings (limited edition dishes) are infamous, and many of them are only available to ‘members.’ If a new customer finishes 80% of their soup, he/she may be given a black card with a silver sticker. This is a membership card. When you show your card on your next visit, you'll get some free toppings. If you continue to drink most or all of your soup, you will also earn bonus stickers on your card, which will entitle you to order thicker soup or gentei menu options. These gentei bowls can be truly unique — legend has it that some years back they served a ramen with a sea turtle egg topping. Next level.
