An Italian style Ramen.

The name of this restaurant in Shimbashi might not suggest a Ramen place. Just in case some of you aren’t familiar with the term, ramen is a hot savory Japanese noodle soup dish that is considered an easy lunch or dinner in Japan. There are many different types of ramen, but the ramen you will find in Due Italian is a very unique fusion of Japanese and Italian style of cooking.

Their restaurant is relatively small like many places in Japan yet very comfortable with outdoor seating for nice weather days.

They have two signature ramen dishes and my friend and I decided to order one of each. The first one is the tomato ramen which is served cold and sweet with lots of tomatoes and some strawberries on top of it. The dish tasted deliciously fresh and I was quite surprised at how well the tomato juice and strawberries complemented each other.

The second signature dish is the hot ramen which is served with melted fromage cheese. This dish is very simple but the soup is exquisite. You mix the cheese and the noodles so they blend together and melts in your mouth. We just stopped talking until there wasn’t a drop left in our bowls. It was that good.

I would recommend this restaurant for a quick lunch place or if you are looking to try a unique type of ramen noodles. Prices are on the cheap side around 1000-1500 yen. So this is one of those cheap and cheerful eateries that I would definitely recommend.

    Your blog is amazing!
    My friend and I are coming to Tokyo for the first time and are more than excited!
    Hope it’s not too much if I ask for a personal advice? We are a bit intimidated by tons of information across the web 😀
    What would you recommend as an absolute must for the first-timers? Interested in 2 or 3 sophisticated places to try kaiseki, maybe some Michelin-starred? And also in more affordable ones for lunch, but also somehow notable and worth visiting? I’ve also heard that street food in Tokyo is great!
    And another question is about the dishes – I want to try everything, but a bit confused with the names trying to memorize it all 😀 what should we absolutely try except smh obvious like sushi and ramen? Shaba Shabu (would be really appreciated if you could give us a tip for a place with the best Shabu Shabu)? Onigiri? Okonomiyaki? Nabemono? smth I left out?

    Thank you so much in advance.
    My very best regards!

      Hi Inessa!

      I would recommend Hamadaya for Kaiseki its a bit pricey but worth the visit.

      If you want cheap and cheerful sushi, try to visit Midori sushi.

      Shabu shabu it really depends on the beef, if you want to go to somewhere casual Shabusen is a good option.

      For Okonomiyaki, try this one

      Yakiniku

      Sorry the links are in Japanese, but you can print them and ask your hotel concierge for the directions.
      I guess this is a good list for first timers. Some are fine dining, and some are casual.

      Hope it helps!
