Kinkai Ramen

A favorite from the day we arrived in Japan, Kinkai’s soup stock is flavored with flying fish and is a relatively healthy alternative to the rich tonkotsu (pork broth) soups that many people love. If a bowl of noodles and a boiled egg isn’t going to fill you up, try the Oyakodama, with crispy kaarage (fried chicken), boiled egg and vegetables for 860 yen. Kinkai comes from Nagasaki, near the epicenter of the recent Kumamoto earthquakes, so their friendly owners are near to our hearts and prayers right now. Two locations in Tokyo: Higashi-Kurume and Hongo-Sanchome, not far from Tokyo University.
