Kaotan Ramen Entotsuya Minami-Aoyama


Restaurants & Cafés


Something of a local institution, this long-running ramen shop is located near the southern edge of Aoyama Cemetery, close to the Nishi-Azabu crossing. A favourite of party animals on the way home from Nishi-Azabu or Roppongi, Entotsuya serves not only delicious noodles but also some fine, garlic-flavoured moyashi and sausages. The shoyu ramen, prepared with thin noodles and fried green onions, is simple and makes for a perfect match with the barracks-like surroundings. Don't worry – despite the appearance, the shop won't actually collapse on you (we hope).
