Suzuran

The basic ramen — ask for chūka-men — is a fine, delicate noodle bathed in an almost clear broth lightly seasoned with shoyu and served in stylish wide white bowls. Ditto with the chunkier tsukemen dipping noodles. The dip, also shoyu-based, is lighter now, and gone is the cabbage/beansprout mix that used to make them so hearty. But the kakuni pork belly is as good and satisfying as ever.

The new Suzuran is just a minute’s walk from Ebisu Station, on the right side of Komazawa-dori, just after the first lights as you head toward the Shibuya-bashi Crossing.

In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
