Open 24 hours, it was a good thing we arrived a little early as the crowd slowly trickled at this branch. The place was pretty small so I was astounded as to how they arranged the seating here.
True to Japanese ramen fashion, one has to order their ramen via a machine. There’s just one ramen to choose here. The others are addition to it or pairing dishes. So you really don’t have to think much at this point aside from the additions.
One really gets a personal ramen experience here. They have these dividers that separate you from other diners. You can take it out if you’re with a group. In every “cubicle”, you get your own water faucet. I was amazed by this and instantly tried it for myself. And oh yeah, this was the part where I got to customize my ramen. I got to choose the flavor strength, richness and others. Ichiran is famous for their original red sauce so it’s a must to have some on your ramen choice. Once everything is all set on the list, just press the button and wait for that ramen bowl to come. For the ramen alone, it costs ¥ 790. That price includes the customization part unless you want some extra ramen noodles (¥ 980 for ramen refill), extra garlic cloves (¥ 120 for two extra cloves) or amp up that original red sauce (¥ 120).
Now, time for some ramen!
