    First place didn't seem all that unless you're just crazy about truffle, which I'm not, otherwise seemed bland & I prefer my noodles firmer too. Third place looked really delicious and unique and I'd love to try those dishes, but it's the second place that looked so amazing that it gave me major food craving lol.

    Went to Nakiryu two weeks ago when I was in Tokyo. First time on a week day there was a sign which said sorry closed for the day. :(. Went back on Saturday and was second in line and ordered the Ten Ten Mei noodles, with won tons, extra pork and egg. It was Awesome!!!! A little bit Spicy, but not blow your head off spicy. Highly recommended and not too far from a JR station. If you have a JR pass, getting to the station on the JR pass is included. Walking distance from the station. - 10 mins.

  • Yumi Deeter

    Ramen needs to be eaten quickly immediately upon being served, or else the noodles continue to cook and soak up the broth. That may be why at the first michelin place, your shio ramen noodles were not al dente and there was less broth, since it looked like you waited to eat it until after you were done with the first one.

    I recently discovered this channel in my searches for cooking videos. At first it was to look at textures and specific ingredients but now I'm addicted to your critiques. Somehow you pull off entertainment in a youtube industry that is usually full of cringe material while also maintaining the deliciousness of each dish. May we feast in Valhalla

    I only made it to Nakiyru, and I was blown away how amazing it was. For me, and I've been to Ichiran and others, it's still my favorite bowl. I loved the tan-tan ramen which was spicy, and with the roasted pork which was amazingly delicious. The wait was worth it, which was only about 45 minutes around 5pm on a weeknight.
