The Second Michelin-Starred Ramen Joint

8430419507_f82c5e770b_kAfter Japan's Michelin stars for 2017 were revealed, it became clear that Tokyo reigns supreme. And one of Tokyo's 161 one-starred restaurants is Nakiryu, a ramen shop located in Otsuka (the same neighborhood as Toshima - the first ramen shop to receive a star in 2015).Unlike its ramen counterparts, Nakiryu is known for their dan dan noodles - spicy Sichuan noodles with ground pork and scallions. Meals cost between 800-1,000 yen (US$7-10) and with its newfound Michelin glory, the shop attracts very long queues. Image Courtesy Ramen Adventures
