Ramenote: Hayashi

by Brian MacDuckston
Metropolis Magazine

You might expect Shibuya to be brimming with excellent ramen, but the hippest stop on the Yamanote is surprisingly lacking. The best of the bunch is Hayashi. The menu is a scant three items deep. Ramen, ramen with an egg, and ramen with extra pork and egg (yakibuta ramen, 焼き豚らーめん, ¥1,000). The shoyu and rich pork soup is, simply put—golden. One drawback, especially for the nocturnal eaters, is that Hayashi is only
open for a few lunchtime hours a day.
