Ivan Ramen --- Noodle Soup by American


Sorry, for long silence.  It has been really hectic, which is good for my business.   Well, lately, I feel I am becoming Ramen Freak. 
Above is regular Shio ( salt ) Ramen at Ivan Ramen.
Ivan ( the owner chef ) used to be a French restaurant chef in New York.  After he saw a Japanese film titled " Tampopo ( Dandelion ) ", he was dreaming about the day to try it.  When he tried Ramen for the first time, he thought he would be addicted to it.

Eventually, he started his own ramen shop.... Well done !  The soup was delicate, not salty or greasy.  I went there with another Ramen freak, but 20 min. wait in line did not bother us. 
address:
3-24-7 Minami Karasuyama, Setagaya-ku, Tokyo 
2 min. from Roka Koen station on Keio line.  After exiting the north side of the station, keep walking along the street till you hit the signal. ( On your right, you will se Seven Eleven ).
Turn left.  Walk another 10 seconds or so.  The shop will be on your right.  

Closed on Wednesday and 4th Tuesday.
Monday - Friday : 17:30-22:30
Sat & Sun: 11:30 - 17:30 
Check their website , please.  When the soup is sold out, the shop will be closed....
