200 kinds of instant ramen

Another shoot for my instant noodle magnum opus. There’s a restaurant – actually more of a bar – in Tokyo where all they serve is instant noodles. 200 kinds! I asked the owner why she choose instant noodles. She said because they are “cheap, easy to make, and never go off”. The dishes on the menu cost from about 200 yen to 400 yen. (2 to 4 dollars). Just the ticket for the current economic climate!

This is the interior of the bar. It was nightmare to light, but the customers were very tolerant of me snapping away as they ate.

The bar has own-brand instant ramen. There are also 10 franchise restaurants across Japan.

  1. I’ve got to agree – nothing wrong with instant noodles! Besides being cheap, you can dress em’ up in so many different ways. On my site, http://www.ramenrater.com, I do a review or sometimes two a day and always a different variety! Check it out if you’ve got time.
