“Ippudo Stand” – How it Works!
At a typical ramen joint, you get right down to the noodles. Not here. Once you’re inside under the festive lanterns, your first stop should be the drinks menu, where from 3pm onward sake takes pride of place. Local liquor stores select their favorite brands from across Japan to create a compact yet comprehensive menu – and with a helpful English guide too. Pair your drink with an appetizer or two, or three… at around ¥180 each, snacks like tempura sliders, squid dumplings and onion rings are hard to resist. Just try to save room for ramen at the end (smaller servings are available if you can’t manage a full bowl)! It’s a concept borrowed from Ippudo’s New York restaurant, now available to try right here in Ippudo’s hometown.
