PARCO Ramen in Shibuya – Jikasei Mensho serves premium wagyu tantanmen to you in a ramen cup, not a bowl. They also serve sesame-based vegan tantamnen.
Ramen Served in a Cup?
The latest Mensho group outpost, Jikasei Mensho is located in Shibuya’s new PARCO department store. Their sleek and modern interior matches the colossal, shiny complex. You also order your ramen (and tantanmen) from a tablet.
Furthermore, instead of a standard ramen bowl, your ramen arrives in a tall plastic cup. The thinking is that the flavors are better distributed with the smaller space at the top.
In addition, all the aromas are that much closer to your nose (with the taller height).
Premium Wagyu Tantanmen
Jikasei Mensho is all about WAGYU tantanmen. Choose accordingly:
The tantanmen is thick, well-balanced and delicious. There’s more of a sesame creaminess than a chili oil kick. The toppings appropriately match the smaller surface area too – including mini bok choy and dried baby shrimp.
