Fodor’s Expert Review

Ramen is the quintessential Japanese fast food: thick Chinese noodles in a savory broth, with sliced leeks, grilled chashu (pork loin), and spinach in a bowl. Each neighborhood in Tokyo has its favorite, and in Ebisu the hands-down favorite is Afuri. Using the picture menu, choose your ramen by inserting coins into a ticket machine, find a seat, and hand over your ticket to the cooks, who prepare your ramen then and there. There's limited seating, and at lunch and dinner, a line of customers extends down the street, but as expected, the ramen is worth it.
