Ten to Sen - Spicy Ramen in Shimokitazawa

Spice Ramen Ten to Sen (スパイスラーメン 点と線.) has the most interesting ramen in Shimokitazawa. Their colorful ramen are all about non-Japanese spices and roar with flavor.

Ten to Sen's Unique Spice Ramen

Ten to Sen’s ramen fall under the “spice ramen” category, or ramen with more exotic spices.

This makes sense. The company running Ten to Sen is famous for soup curry (a Hokkaido born curry dish). They proudly source most of their ingredients from Hokkaido – meat (pork, chicken, fish) and vegetables.

In the broth there’s a lot going on, flavor-wise. But it’s not muddled and confusing. It’s rather deliciously interesting and you’ll taste everything from cumin to turmeric. It’s like a cross between ramen and spice-heavy soup curry.

This version allows you to better appreciate the individual topping textures. But the spices take more of a backseat without the soup.
