MOCHI MOCHI NO KI is originally from Shiraoka, Saimata. Their shop in Shinjuku is their only shop in Tokyo, but they do have 7 other shops outside of Tokyo. Its one of my wife's favorite ramen and for me, too. Their soup is a blend of 2 soups. One is made out of chicken, pork, vegetables and the other made out of various dried sardines & dried bonito. It is mixed together in a different pot and boiled until its really hot. (this is called DOUBLE SOUP among ramen freaks) Before pouring this soup into the bowl, a soy sauce based sauce is add and then seasoned boiled oil is added to keep the soup hot until the very last drop. Because this oil is covering noodle and soup, no steam comes out of the soup even though it is very hot.

No matter what you order the soup is extremely hot and if you're not careful when drinking it, you will burn your mouth easily. Also, noodles soften faster than normal because of this. We always ask for noodles to be cooked hard (in Japanese, MEN KATAME) because you won't be able to eat it as fast as you normally would and noodles will be extra soft by the time you only finished half of it. The other thing you will notice is that this is one of the few ramen shops in Tokyo, where the customer ratio of male/female is about half and half, when most ramen shops are 90% men and 10% women.
