Yoga Area Ramen Shop Sairaiken – Since 1959

When it comes to the Yoga area for ramen, I absolutely love ramen restaurant Sairaiken (再来軒). Now celebrating 60 years of business, it’s run by two lovely ladies and has all the mystical charm of a Showa era establishment.

Yoga Ramen + Memory Lane

Sairaiken is just a stone’s throw away from Yoga station on the Den-en-toshi Line. Yoga is quaint residential neighborhood tucked away in Setagaya City and it’s close to where I grew up.

Sairaiken certainly feels like that neighborhood ramen shop. You can tell they have a steady stream of devoted customers.

The biggest highlight is the two friendly ladies that work there. Interacting with them is a joy. Their friendly energy knows no bounds, even as they tirelessly prepare bowl after bowl.

Simple But Delicious Ramen

They have 3 varieties of ramen: shoyu, shio and soy milk. They all have zero chemical additives. The broth is made up of chicken and pork bones, fish, and various vegetables.

Shoyu Ramen with Dumplings

It’s all simple but delicious. The shio broth is lively and refreshing. The shoyu is similarly tasty. But it’s quite a light shoyu and almost leans in the direction of white shoyu.

Shio Ramen

Get the dumpling (wonton) toppings for only an extra ¥100. They’re fluffy and have a wonderful amount of ginger. The meaty chashu is no slouch either.

Thin noodles

While the classic ramen is marvelous, Sairaiken is all about the overall experience. This ramen shop is truly one of a kind, and the best Yoga ramen restaurant.
