This place is unbelievable. Don't let the semi-pretentious feeling get to you...it gets better. It is true what they say about Shiki Menya...you have to get there right at 11:00am...they only serve 150 bowls of Ramen per day, and it's usually lined up out the door by 11:30. My personal favourite item is the Chili Goma Ramen...it's a spicy, peanutty broth with ground pork, a boiled egg, and lots of veggies and noodles. We also ordered the Gyoza dumplings to start which were great. Come hungry. This place is a gem. There is also a location in Vancouver!
