3-24-7 Minamikarasuyama, Tokyo, 157-0062, Japan

New York-born Ivan Orkin's 12-counter-seat ramen house opened in 2007, originally drawing customers curious about a gaijin "noodle man," and later because of the flavor of his dishes. A veteran of New York hot spots Mesa Grill and Lutece, Orkin now mans the kitchen of this small storefront in an arcade in an unremarkable Tokyo suburb. Shio (salt) and shoyu (soy sauce) ramen are the house specialties, served with a variety of toppings, including pork and egg, but there are also "dipping" ramens on the menu, all cooked according to Orkin's "slow food fast" philosophy.
