Ichiran ramen is a unique ramen-experience.
At first you choose your meal and modifications by buying a ticket outside the restaurant.
Prepare for some alone time with your ramen.
Next step is to fill in the form – personalising your ramen from the broth and spiciness to garlic and spring onions:
After handing the form through the gap in your booth to a worker you can enjoy the traditional Japanese-style ambience while you wait.
Then… ramen appears through the hole in front of your seat:
You can also get re-fills of noodles and meat and so on for a bit extra if you find yourself still hungry.
