On this unique ramen experience, you’ll taste an unusual variety of ramen that you never knew existed, and you’d never find outside of Japan! Perhaps you’d like to taste coffee ramen, which as well as its coffee broth, coffee-flavored noodles and toppings such as ice-cream, you can even go one step further and sprinkle with parmesan cheese… Or there’s blue ramen, which does exactly what it says on the tin; the perfectly clear chicken broth is bright blue - apparently, it was inspired by the Hawaiin Sea! But it’s not all completely wacky, you could try a modern take on tsukemen ramen, where the noodles and broth are served separately. But why settle for traditional when you could feast on a version that has a pie baked on top of the soup?
Of the thousands of ramen shops in Tokyo, your host knows where to go if you’re looking for something a little more unusual than miso broth... In central Tokyo, Shibuya is a kaleidoscope of ramen joints, from 6-seater purists’ ramen shops to those where you slurp in your own individual booth, but your host knows exactly where to go for one of the more out-there varieties. Or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even make a ramen pilgrimage way out west to a ward of Tokyo that most visitors never see. In Tachikawa City, you’ll find that pie-topped ramen, or there’s the Itabashi ward - worth the journey if a Mexican-Japanese fusion ramen shop, where a shot of tequila is added to coriander infused broth, sounds like your style!
