Ramen Review #1 "Hakusan Ramen"

Located near Sengoku Station on the Mita line, Hakusan offers up some of Tokyo's best Tonkotsu style ramen in my opinion. The soup is extremely rich, a little salty, and loaded with that unique flavor that can only be obtained from boiling pork bones overnight. The shop isn't much more than a street stand with no interior, which makes eating a little tricky. If you aren't lucky enough to get a seat at the one picnic table or two benches in the area, you have to eat your noodles squatting on the sidewalk. Nonetheless, people can be seen lining up at this place by the dozens on a daily basis. Hakusan is open from 9:00 pm to 4:00 am Monday through Saturday, great for late night runs after boozing at the izakayas.
