Ice Cold Ramen in Ginza - Outside Daytime

Ice Cold Ramen

Pour Cafe does a Yamagata prefecture style soy-sauced based cold ramen. But Pour Cafe takes it to another level with the giant ice cubes.

At Night

The ramen broth is salty, including the ice cubes, carrying a fairly strong fish taste. But it’s a soothing meal when it’s insanely hot out.

Day time

Another unique point – they add olive oil! This gives a buttery flavor to the broth. Furthermore, the cold temperature keeps those noodles extra firm.

In the video below, I cover this unique bowl (ramen shop no. 2 of 4).


Tomato Ramen and Soupless Ramen

If you fancy something hot, try their tomato ramen. It’s not a watery tomato broth, but a thick one. It’s closer to a tomato pasta, topped off with cheese.

They also have a soupless ramen, with a concentrated soy sauce base and plenty of vegetables. This is perhaps as close to a ramen salad as you can get.

Rustic Interior

Pour Cafe is a funky little establishment.
