Greatest Ningyocho Ramen: Men Yamara

Men Yamara (麺 やまらぁ) is arguably the greatest option for Ningyocho ramen. Their shoyu ramen is as thick as gravy but is relatively light and has a fun fish undertone.

Syrupy Shoyu Ramen

Their shoyu ramen gets a high score for uniqueness. The chicken bone broth is thick and syrupy like paitan, but has a strong (bonito) fish punch.

Yamara with Flavored Egg: ¥950

Despite the thick composition, it has a pleasantly light flavor. There’s also a fair amount of sweetness, brought on by a lot of floating negi. The broth gets more watery towards the end, as the dense noodles slowly release water. But this works to the bowl’s advantage.

Lastly, they do a nice egg topping – both creamy and salty.

I have yet to try their shio and miso ramen. I will be back – Men Yamara is top choice for Ningyocho ramen.
