I've read so many good reviews about Mutekiya Ramen however, all the photos look extremely oily. Can anyone confirm whether it is very oily and can you order the less oily version?
And could someone please help me with transport directions to get to Menya Kissou (Koto-Ku, Tokyo, Japan) 麺屋 吉左右. I will be staying in ikebukuro.
Glad you're going to try out Menya Kissou (my current fave! :). I've found that Google Maps is decent at giving you directions. Enter your Start Address (Hotel) and the Menya Address - Copy&Paste the Kanji address for both - and then, for the destination portion, I actually Zoom In on Google Maps and print out a high-level from the exit Station to Menya Kissou, and then an ultra-zoomed in version to show the buildings and neighborhood at max detail. I have the address in my review if you don't have it:
Keep the Kanji Address and Name with you on the print-out, and consult any local businesses if you still can't find it (people are generally always willing to help you out). It took me only ~5 minutes from the station (it's pretty close).
I'll have to try Silverjay's Hyperdia app as well next time I go. Thanks Silverjay! :)
