Fodor's Review

It's a mystery why a few ramen restaurants are famous and millions are not. This ordinary-looking 10-stools-at-the-plastic-counter joint in Susukino has had lines of faithful slurpers outside since the year 2000 (a lifetime for a ramen shop) and is still chopping, boiling, and serving its succinct seven-item ramen menu that includes cha-shu (seasoned pork) and kaku-ni (pressure-cooked pork). Keyaki even has a branch in the Ramen Museum in Yokohama. At the original shop you order from the vending machine at the door (there is a small guide in English with pictures on the wall by the machine, but the buttons are only in Japanese, so just ask the friendly staff for help) then wait on the bench or stand around the corner (to avoid lines, get here soon after they open at 10:30 or at least before the lunch rush). Once you get your seat, wait for the cook to hand down a steaming bowl topped generously with vegetables from the raised and hidden kitchen. If you want to keep your clothes clean, don't avoid slurping, just accept the paper bib they offer.
