Taketora 麺匠 竹虎 本店
A very unique place that serves soya sauce pork spicy bone tsukemen ramen. The special ingredient in the ramen is the spicy oil. The ramen is very rich and flavourful. This place is very popular with women. And if you are a lady, you have a free serving of collagen meat balls. Apparently, this helps keep your skin and face look very beautiful! A good broth, but not the best in Shinjuku.
