If you had a Japanese grandmother who wanted to make you a large bowl of chicken noodle soup, she’d (hopefully) make the equivalent of Afuri’s chicken and yuzu-based ramen. The place itself is only a counter (almost all ramen shops are), you order classic ramen bowls from a ticketing machine in front, and you’re basically surrounding the cooks. The broth here is light, but the grilled char-siu (pork) provides just enough substance and smokiness to make this an excellent ramen experience. Afuri is also in a cool neighborhood and is ideal for an on-the-go ramen stop when you still want to be able to move after you eat. Also, hangovers - it’s good for those.
