Ramenote: Nagi Golden Gai

Shinjuku
The Nagi group of ramen shops has a few locations around Tokyo, but its Golden Gai branch is unique. Stuffed in on the second floor above an equally narrow bar, the shop is open all night to serve the best hangoverprevention medicine known to man: niboshi ramen (煮干ラーメン, ¥750). A pinch of dried sardines is often added to ramen for a slightly bitter, fishy flavor. But the pinch becomes a punch at this regular stop for Kabukicho revelers.
2F, 1-1-10 Kabukicho, shinjuku-ku.
Tel: 03-3205-1925.open: 24/7, Closed every 3rd Mon.
