The February 2011 issue of Shokuraku magazine lists the top ten new ramen shops in Tokyo. As most of this information only appears in Japanese I hope by including it in this blog that more people can come to explore these new restaurants.

A very unique concept where the soup is dispensed from a siphon and the toppings are served separately (see photos above). While I prefer to have my ramen assembled by the restaurant (the whole reason for going out to eat right?) it is a curious concept and one I imagine brings in a lot of customers. The soup is a W or a blend of two types, seafood and chicken and includes kombu dashi.
