無鉄砲 outside
When you think of food from Kyoto, most Japanese people think that its light and not salty, but when it comes to ramen its totally the opposite. Its heavy, oily and tasty. A ramen shop from Kyoto opened in Tokyo a couple of years ago and it has gotten many people addicted. This ramen shop is MUTEPPOU at Numabukuro.

無鉄砲 soup mix
Muteppou's broth is made of pork bones and water only. It is boiled until the bones are completely crushed and the chef is constantly mixing the bones or broth using a huge stainless steel stick.

無鉄砲 とんこつラーメン
The regular ramen and most popular one is TONKOTSU RAMEN (Pork bone broth ramen) for 750 yen. It has couple of slices of chashu (boiled pork) and large portion of Kujyonegi (Spring onions of Kujyo, Kyoto) on top. The broth is extra thick and rich and different from Hakata-style Tonkotsu ramen.

無鉄砲 ノーマルの中太麺
Noodles are medium thick and wavy, and just like Hakata-style tonkotsu ramen,

無鉄砲 替え玉の細麺
you can have KAEDAMA (Extra noodles) for 100 yen, but this time the noodles are thin like Hakata-style tonokotsu ramen

無鉄砲 あっさり魚スープ
When you are done eating your noodles, you can add either ASSARI SAKANA SOUP (clear fish soup) which makes the broth milder

無鉄砲 追いスープ とんこつ
or more TONKOTSU SOUP (Pork bone broth) to your broth. This additional broth is an original of Mutteppou.

無鉄砲 ライス
Some people add rice to the broth and make rice gruel to enjoy all of the soup.

無鉄砲 ごま、紅しょうが、辛し高菜、しょうゆにんにく
Just like Hakata-style tonokotsu ramen, you can add roasted sesame, benishoga (pickled ginger), karashi takana(spicy takana pickles) and soy sauce, if you like to your ramen

無鉄砲 ネギもおかわり
You can also order addtional Kujyonegi (Spring onions of Kujyo, Kyoto) for 200 yen. Kujyonegi is sweeter than regular spring onions, which makes the broth mild as well.

無鉄砲 魚正油ラーメン
If Tonkotsu ramen is too heavy for you, they also have lighter ramen, SAKANA SHOYU RAMEN (Pork bone & fish broth ramen) for 750 yen. The broth is a mix of pork and clear fish broth.

無鉄砲 ギョーザ
If you want to order any side dishes, their GYOZA for 400 yen are pretty good as well.

無鉄砲 inside
Muteppou is located at Numabukuro, which you take the Seibu Shinjuku line from Shinjuku and once getting off the train its still a good 8 minute walk from the station. When famous ramen shops outside of Tokyo open a shop in Tokyo, they usually open one at or near a big train station. But Muteppou decided to open it in a middle class residential area far away from the nearest train station, and even without any publicity it still became one of the busiest ramen shops in Tokyo. Since its heavy and oily this ramen is not for everyone, but if you wanna try something different, check Muteppou out.
