But this time we want to introduce you to the gourmet side of Akihabara. Since people visit from all over the world, Akihabara has a large selection of restaurants to please many palettes.
Ramen restaurants are especially competitive. You can find many good ramen shops in Akihabara. From here we want to introduce our editors choice.
Hidden away in the basement of a building, it`s a bit of a ramen lover`s retreat. The noodles they use are made from rare Udon flour which is grown in Kagawa prefecture. Everyday the dough is hand kneaded in the shop. The chewy texture of the noodles is so addictive. They make the soup by stewing a whole chicken including cartilage and bones. This gives the ramen a light taste which does not over power the flavour of the noodle itself.
