Build-your-own ramen is a concept that sounds pretty gimmicky, but Shin-Sen-Gumi works - the ramen is great and the operation’s well run.

From the thickness of the noodles to the richness of the broth, you can customize your bowl to any degree you want here, and that’s the kind of power that keeps people lining up.
