Ramen in Shinjuku & Northwest Tokyo

Nagi, once an upstart, has done well and now has branches around the city – and around Asia. This tiny shop, one of the originals, up a treacherous stairway in Golden Gai, is still our favourite. (It's many people's favourite and often has a line.) The house speciality is niboshi ramen (egg noodles in a broth flavoured with dried sardines).
