After my trips to Vancouver and New York, it was back to Japan for a while. My flight required me to stop over in Tokyo for a few hours, though, so I made the most of it by swinging by Tokyo Ramen Street.

Tokyo Ramen Street has switched up its stores a few times since I lived in Tokyo. New to the street is Tonari, a shop specializing in tanmen, a vegetable-filled style of shio ramen. I had never actually had tanmen before, so I was pretty excited to give the style a try.



Lots of vegetables in tanmen

The Bowl
The broth was a simple shio, very light and peppery. It was easy to drink, but was just a base for the smattering of toppings. Thick curly noodles, sprouts, carrots, chives, corn, and cabbage covered the bowl. Light and tasty, and probably the most healthy bowl of ramen I've ever had.


Would I Go Again?
It was tasty, but I still have other shops in Tokyo Ramen Street to visit.


Should You Go?
Anyone who hasn't had a bowl of tanmen should try one, and Tonari is a good place to try it.
