This world-renowned ramen restaurant is consistently full of people looking to tuck into the famous tonkotsu ramen known for its smooth and silky pork-based stock. But now, if you prefer to avoid the possibility of a wait or not eat indoors, you can indulge in takeout or delivery. The menu is simple—there are three kinds of tonkotsu ramen: the "Shiromaru classic" with dashi, pork belly chashu, sesame kikurage mushrooms, menma, pickled ginger, and scallions; the "Akamaru modern" topped with miso paste; and a spicy version with an added kick. The chicken karaage (marinated hand-battered fried chicken) is also a must, and, when dining in, so are the top-tier sake and Tori whisky highballs.
