I decided to try this restaurant on my search for Tokyo's best bowl of ramen. After arriving at the restaurant (which took a bit of searching, since it isn't written Ramen Nagi in English), I had a moment of panic when I noticed that you needed to place your order from a machine (with everything written in Japanese). After staring at the machine in confusion for quite some time, a customer leaving the restaurant was kind enough to explain how the machine worked (we found out after that there was a picture with English translations tucked away beside the machine afterwards). I'm glad we stuck around, because the ramen was delicious! I hadn't had a broth like this before. It was salty, umami, and sardine-based. The noodles, egg and pork were cooked to perfection. You had a choice to order either a richer, thicker version of the broth (Niboshi special) or a more watery version (classic), and the pork comes in either thicker chunks or very thin slices. Since it was my first time trying the broth, I'm happy that I went for the lighter version of it since first-timers might find the heavier version too fishy. In addition, we preferred the "chunks" of pork to the thin slices (which came with the classic version). Overall, very much worth the lost in translation moment with the vending machine!
