What we love…
- If you've never tried ramen before Kamakura is a great place to experience your first bowl in Japan. Locals and tourists agree that this is one of, or the best, ramen in Tokyo.
- First you'll purchase your ticket at the machine at the front door. Luckily each of the menu items have English translations, so if you don't have an specific dietary restraints just pick one of the most popular bowls and you'll be sure to enjoy your meal. Depending on the bowl you ordered you might want to purchase extra toppings (egg, sliced meats etc…) these are sold separately so you'll get a ticket for each topping. There are also a number a sides which are also delicious, do yourself a favor and try the fried chicken, it compliments the ramen perfectly.
- Once you've got your tickets in hand, find a seat at the long bar that over looks the kitchen. Your server will grab your tickets and within minutes you'll have your meal.
- The ramen is a superb combination of salty broth, savory meat, and crispy fresh cabbage that adds a little crunch to the mix. The noodles have a bit of bite and will keep you full for hours.
- Located in Tokyo's most lively neighborhood Shibuya, where bars and karaoke bars rock on until the early morning hours, Kamakura is open until the wee hours of the morning to help you soak up the sake and beer from your night on the town.
