Recommended bowl: Crab & shrimp soup

A higher-than-average-ranked shop in a quiet area of Okubo, just north of Shinjuku. The main bowl and most popular option is the 'gyokai miso ramen', made with a crab and shrimp-based soup, served with nori and wakame seaweed. At one point in time each bowl was served with a topping of shrimps and clams; but alas, this practice is no longer active. The bowl is well-balanced though; the thicker but slightly wavy flat noodles pair well with the rich soup. Not in the mood for something fishy? Some regular customers swear by the other soup options on the menu — among them a purely pork-based tonkotsu shoyu ramen.
