NileGuide Expert tip:

Leave your health concerns at home and just point to the picture to enjoy a mountain of incredibly rich chashu (braised pork).


Akasaka (赤坂) ramen is another one of Tokyo's famous ramen chains. The main shop is in - you guessed it - Akasaka, but they've opened up a location on Setagaya's notorious Kan-nana dori. Specializing mainly in shoyu (soy sauce) based soups, but offering a large menu by ramen shop standards, Akasaka's main draw is its chashu (pork). When you approach the storefront, you'll see pictures advertising the restaurant's most infamous dish: a bowl of ramen topped with several incredibly thick slabs of bacon-like braised pork. They're marinated in miso and other sweet and spicy condiments, and basically cover the whole bowl. This is the dish to order for the true Akasaka experience.
