Lined up along with the other cafes, restaurants, and izakayas in Shibuya is the famous chain ramen restaurant 天下一品 (Tenka Ippin, sometimes Tenkaippin). Here customers can choose between two types of broth for their ramen. If you would like a thicker and heartier soup base, ask for "kotteri," a popular option among customers. However, if you would like a lighter soup base with fewer calories, ask for "assari".
Regardless of their slight difference in consistency, both are equally flavorful, without being too salty or too sweet, as some ramen tend to be. Aside from their flavorful broths, the noodles at Tenka Ippin also make the restaurant worth visiting, with just the right amount of softness and chewiness.
Prices for just a bowl of ramen range from 700 to 1000 Yen, depending on the flavor as well as the size (regular or large), a decent price considering the generous size of their servings. To get the best value for your money, check out their sets that feature fried rice, gyoza, and other side dishes with your bowl of noodle soup, which can also be ordered separately.
A wide of variety of drinks is available; if you want to dine the Japanese way, as a Japanese salaryman would, why not treat yourself to a glass of cold Asahi beer, the perfect accompaniment to a warm bowl of ramen. Tenka Ippin has several other branches in Tokyo, so make sure to check out the restaurant's website for listings.
