Fodor's Review

If your only experience with ramen is instant noodles, get thee to this authentic Japanese soup joint. With thin, fresh egg noodles and homemade broth (it's a meat stock, so vegetarians won't find much on the menu), a bowl of noodle soup here is cheap, filling, and ever so tasty. Expect long lines, but you can use the wait to decide between lean or fatty pork and miso or soy stock. Once you're inside the bare-bones storefront, the harried staff doesn't tolerate any dithering. Kintaro is owned by the same people as Motomachi: they're both top-notch ramen shops but this one is more of a quick eat-and-run stop—not the place for a leisurely meal.
